    Had to assist my little chick because it was getting shrink wrapped, it has something red sticking out.[​IMG]
    here's another shot of it:[​IMG]


    What is it, and what do I do?

    Thanks for any help, I greatly appreciate it!

    I have read that sometimes when a chick hatches, the yolk is not fully absorbed. It is not to uncommon, and usually the yolk gets absorbed over the course of a few days after hatching.

    But what is the red part? Is that yolk sack? The chick is acting totally normal. The yellow stuff was coming out right before the pic.

    Thanks.
