    I have not tried this, but have read to put a damp paper towel in a tea cup and set the chick inside, and the yolk absorbs. Of course, keep in a warm place.

    That should dry right up and fall off. If it doesn't fall off on it's own after a few days, if you can get under it you can cut it. I had one like that. It was still attatched 3 or 4 days after hatch but had dried up and was close to the body. I went move it to see if I coudl get under it to cut it and it fell right off.

    That looks like the unhealed navel, and if it is will just keep drying and heal up on it's own (like a scab).
