Good evening everyone. I’m new to the chicken world and just hatched my very first egg in my cheaply made home made incubator. Chick hatched with what looked like an umbilical cord attached to the egg and it’s belly! Is that normal?
It may close on it's own, but keep a close eye on it. Maybe research and see if you think it's worth going and buying iodine. Sorry about all this! I had one like this and she was fine w/o iodine, it just depends on the situation.
