    I just had one hatch this morning. Except it was the yolk hanging out, it quickly went up into its body after it got out.

    Good luck! Maybe someone with more help will chime in! [​IMG]

    Sounds like the umbilical cord may be showing. The umbilical cord is very thin/tiny. If the bleeding is just a couple drops, it may be from the umbilical cord. If the stuff hanging from the bum is yellow or large like marble sized, you may have a problem.

    Is the chick running around, or is it just laying around?

    chickens do not have cords like mammals. prolapsed of tissue in vent sounds more like it
