My chicks hatched (with help) 6 hours ago. One detached from the shell soon after birth, however 2 are still attached.

One is attached by what looks like a small blood vessel. He is very active and want to get up but cant because of the shell.

The other is very attached by what looks like a very large blood vessel.

My question is - will the attachment dry up on its own. Has this happened to anyone before?

thanks

When my chicks hatch like that I leave it alone and let it come off on its own. I had an egg follow one of my chicks around for two days once.
