    This chick hatched bout 3 hours ago and I still have in in the bator. What are the red lumps that look like an organ? Can I do anything?

    this one hatched out of a really huge egg. It is not near the vent, it is where the umbilical is connected-do we need to worry?

    If it is some of his inner parts...which it appears to be....I would not give him hope. However I would leave it in the bator and time will tell if the chick will live or not. my 2 cents.

    found one older post that looked like the same thing but no end report-some thought it might be an undeveloped twin. It has a little base to it. Really odd-it is the last chick so the bator is a nice safe place to wait it out! I hope it is ok and it dries up.
