I just helped a chick that was stuck hatch out of its shell, and it's doing fine under our broody hen, but it seems to have a red bump of some sort stuck to the area around its butt/stomach. I have no idea what it is, and im thinking that it is just something that didn't come off when it hatched out. There was not an excessive amount of blood when it came out, so i know it's not underdeveloped, it just was in the wrong position or something, so it had difficulty pushing out. Will this -whatever it is- fall off of the chick after it's all fluffed up?
