    Ok so the reason i am asking so many questions this hatch is cause they arnt cheep chicks. So i have 2 hatch last night and one today. the one today has a giant lump where the umbiliocal cord was attached. one of the two from last night didnt make it..... and the other one from last nights lump has gotten smaller but still it still hasnt stood up. when this chick pipped there was quite a bit of blood i dunno if it was premature or what not and i was wondering would the reason it not started to get up yet cause it lost enough blood to be really really weak but not bleed out cause the thing is still alive.
