    It sounds like something must have dropped on him/her. A week old is not old enough to have intestinal parasites loads get t heavy enough as to crawl out on their own. It would be seriously ill.
    Don't worry.

    I know there is a lot of stuff to be concerned about, but It was probably not from the chick.
    I will add some links to this post for you after I get them brought up.
