    hello and Good Morning to all,
    So I had a chick born this morning. He now has something hanging off his belly. It is just a shapeless blob...Could it be the whatever you call the thing that supposedly kept him nourished in the egg? I dont want to mess with it, but I did rinse it off and put bandaid over it so Mama would leave it alone. I donlt have a lot of faith in him making it but I will do the best I can.. I would have taken a pic if I would have thought of it before I bandaided him, but like I say I would rather leave it and him alone to rest for now...Thank you in advance for any help or advice.
    Sincerest Wishes,

    Is it like a smushy thing hanging by a threadlike thing from about right between his legs?
    Sorry about the bad description!
