    I have just recieved my new chicks and never have raised them before I have a question for someone. Their is something dangling of the backend of one of my chicks and I am pretty sure it's not out of their rectum, any ideas Thanks Roger

    It's a dried up umbilical cord. You can nip it off, but don't pull.
