    My little chick still has a bit of umbilicus attached. It's super thin with a tiny tiny sac attached to the end of it. Will it dry up and fall off like a human's or do I need to do something?

    It should just dry and drop off if you're you could tie it of with some dental floss. Hope it helps [​IMG]
