  4. Its probably where it absorbed the yolk. But I'd definitely keep an eye on it, make sure it's clean and not bloody. I had a silkie chick that had a red bump on its navel, but it dried up and went away eventually. Check that no other chicks are pecking that area

    Thanks, i have had to move the other chicks away from it a few times, and it seems too be smaller now.

  6. That's good, hopefully the rest will leave it alone so it heals up correctly. :)
