    I have a newly hatched chick and it looks like maybe the umbilical cord still attached?? His flapping around everywhere and I don't know what to do! He also looks as if the yolk is just in his tummy. If that makes since his stomach looks soft and round like a yolk. Please help me idk what to do

    I wish I had some advice to give you. Did the chick survive?

    I sometimes have them come out with a little unabsorbed yolk and sometimes they'll drag their shells around for a little while. I just leave them be and let them rest. If its meant to survive, it'll absorb the yolk, the umbilical cord will dry up and all will be well.

    I hope your chick is doing better now :fl
