    My day old Chick has a crusty vent area. When I washed it with warm water some came off and now when you press gently on the stomach area a bubble comes out and then goes back in. It looks yellow inside with clear skin and some veins. What is this? Will it die? There is no opening like the other babies in the vent area. She isn't up and walking like others.

  2. its the yolk. leave it be. it will absorb. its prob not the vent ur looking at. i wouldnt mess with it anymore
