    ok, i have hatched several times but this is the first. i have two chics born with an attatchment to their cords. almost like a yoke sac. looks like a placenta. what causes it.

    Sounds like the yolk was not fully absorbed before it hatched. Someone with more experience will know and hopefully answer.
