    That doesnt look good. I have only read about this but OOmphalitis comes to my mind when I see this,. Has this 6 week old chick always been this way? Is he picking himself?

    I wish I could help you figure out what it is, but I'm pretty sure that's not cocci! I do, however, hope you have him separated from the rest of your chicks; whatever it is, it looks/sounds contagious!
