    One of the chicks that just arived today, has what appears to be a little, pea sized bit of what i am guessing is unabsorbed yolk. The yolk "button" is dry and hard. It doesn't seem to be bothering the chick at all. In fact, she is eating, drinking and just as active as the rest. I haven't seen the other chicks picking at it or anything, so at least that is good!

    Do I need to be concerned? Will this just eventually be absorbed on its own. Is there anything I should do? I know I may seem extra worried, but these are my very first chicks and I want the best for them! Thanks for any advice.

    Here is a pic. (The fluff is a bit in the way)
