    I hatched eight babies last night and it was my first clutch!!! One of the babies looks like there is something growing out of its vent. I can't even see the vent opening. Will this go away? I'm concerned it's not able to go the bathroom. I put nreosporin on it. Any help would greatly help.[​IMG]

    That's the 'umbilical' spot, just leave it and it should dry up and be fine... the vent is above that, directly under the tails stub...
