    new hatched chicks... two of them have red protrusions (like bubbles) sticking out of their stomachs... the egg shell is not connected and they kicked the shell off themselves while hatching... is this something I should be worried about? one seems to be doing really well the other not doing so well.. my other two chicks without them seem fine.

    It may be their umbilicus. If so, it should close up.
