Hello i have a baby chick that hatched this morning under my hen and it still has an umbilical cord attached. Its not looking to healthy either what can i do? I will post pics
It's not like a human umbilical cord. The whole thing is supposed to end up inside them. If you've hatched other eggs, you'll notice that they didnt leave a similar thing behind... that's because theirs absorbed all the way and is inside them now.I am gonna put it in an incubator by its self. Can i tie it off and cut it
Lol she is a new mother hen. And i will go to store and get electrolyteYour mama must have been awfully hungry to eat that!
It is going to need energy. Here is a recipe for the next few days. It is lacking vitamins though. You may have to give it with a dropper. Put some antibiotic ointment (without the pain medicine in it) or vetericyn on it for the next few days.
