    I have a production red that hatched this morning with a herniated umbilical. One of the other chicks pulled on it and a big glob Came out. It was leaking yolk for a bit. Just checked on it and its got yolk all over it again. I'm not sure what to do. Any advice is appreciated

    Separate the chick, if you haven't already, clean up the navel area as best you can and dab a little iodine in it. Fingers crossed for the little one [​IMG]
