When this chick hatched it was pulling the shell around with two thin stringy looking things. I left it alone and it finally freed itself. What I am concerned about it that where the strings were connected to the chick it seems to have pulled the navel out. Does that make any since. You can see it a little in the photo posted. I'm worried about the little guy.

I've had chicks pulling their shells around with the "strings" and had things that didn't look right like yours does. It's never ended up being a problem and I don't think I even notice it after they fluff up. I'm curious to see what others say about this and I hope you're sweet chick is ok!
