    I have a chick that is a few days old but now the yolk is coming out of her belly button?! Believe or not.. That's what it looks like.
    What am I supposed to do? :( She's had a rough time as it is but I never thought the yoke could come out of the belly button...

    You could try placing a touch of ointment and a bandaid over it until it dries up or is absorbed. Some folks have been able to make a small belly wrap out of gauze but leaving holes for the legs. Best of luck.
