    It's probably just some membrane stuck to his belly button. He should be oke. [​IMG] pics?

    Hm... that's a little worse than i thought. It's possible that the red is its organs, but I can't tell from the picture. It's more likely that it's just membrane. Don't worry, let him dry off and see what happens there.

    That looks like a little bit of unabsorbed yolk. Just let him rest, he should be fine...or should I say she.

    Just make sure other chicks can't peck at it.
