Please help. Chick is 2 days old and appears active and healthy. Speckled sussex. She had a bit of pasty butt which I cleared up with a warm wet rag but this I think is actually underneath the vent, at first I thought it was more pasty butt but it is FIRMLY attached and seemed to hurt her when I tried to gently remove it. Poor girl. Is it the belly button? Do I need to do something? Is this cause for concern? Freaking out a bit.
