Hello, finished cleaning my chicks pasty butts and noticed one of my chicks has a bloody black thing on her bottom? She is picking at it...what is it? What should I do?

I can't tell for sure from your pic, but it looks like her navel. That's where the cord was attached when she was in the egg. I had a similar thing with one of my chicks once. It healed up within a few days.

It'll come off by itself. Don't fiddle with it!
