This is my first time hatching chicks and this one had problems getting out of the egg. It was stuck in there like glue, we carefully got it free and noticed it had what i think was its umbilical cord wrapped around both its legs, we carefully snipped it and saw no bleeding. But noticed this protrusion.
Does anyone have any advice on whats going on with it or how to help it. Should i put ointment on it? It also seems to have curled toes. Its still freshly hatched but it keeps trying to walk around like the other chicks and seems to want to live so i don't want to give up on it quite yet.
Any advice/help would be much appreciated as i'm just a newbie and i don't have much experience in this yet.
