    HI THER I WAS WONDERING IF YOU COULD HELP ME? I HAVE A 3 DAY OLD LAVENDER BANTAM ARACUNA CHICK (ONLY ONE HATCHED). IT HAS A LOOSE BLAB OF SKIN THAT HAS NO FLUFF OR ANYTHING ON IT ABOVE ITS BUM. IT HATCHED LIKE THIS. IT IS NOW GETTING FECIES ON THAT FLAB. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS IS ? IS IT NORMAL? AND HOW COULD IT BE FIXED? APART FROM THAT HE IS VERY HAPPY.

    MANY THANKS CHUGGS

  2. Hi Chuggs,
    Is it the yolk sac which feed the bird whilst its still in the egg?
    Is it a prolapse of the vent, although this usually occurs when birds are older and egg laying?
    Be careful that the hatchling doesn't get pasted up which occurs with guinea fowl keets where the dropping attach to the bottom area. http://farmingfriends.com/guinea-fowl-keets-pasting-up/
    I hope the chick gets sorted and grows well.
    Kind regards
    Sara @ farmingfriends
