Something wrong with newborn chick

This is a Lav Orp/GL Cochin cross chick born this afternoon for the Easter Hatch-a-Long.

When she broke out of the shell, blood gushed from her navel. I put pressure on it with some gauze and stopped the bleeding. Put her in the bator inside a cup. Checked on her 15 mins or 1/2 hour later, and she was COLD. I noticed she wanted to bend her body in half, her head down, feet up and over her back. I wrapped her upright and stuffed her between my boobs to keep her warm, and walked around with her like that for an hour or two.

Put her back in the bator, and she's been doing this ever since, unless she's sleeping.
