    Ok so I just hatched out some chicks and one of them has something really wrong I think. It looks like he has a really big a bloody umbilical cord and I'm not sure if it is suppose to look like that or if his insides are comming out... I don't know how to post a pic on this forum so if you think you can help please email me directly so I can send you a pic of him. my email is rjordan18@kc.rr.com Thanks, Kristina

    It's probably his yolk sac and his insides are coming out with it...I just had a chick like this hatch out two days ago....I left it in the incubator to see if it would possibly absorb it , mine didn't and I had to cull it....Give it time to try to absorb on its own in the bator...

    Have you taken him out of the bator from the hatch already?..

    If you have you will just have to isolate him from the others in the brooder box and not put him back in the incubator...I kept mine in the bator from when he hatched so the bloody yolk sac would stay moist to absorb....
