Incorrectly formed navel

Recommended Posts

Inevitably I have worries already! I think justifiably though. I noticed that one of the chicks I bought had a mucky bum, so I cleaned it with wet kitchen roll, and when I was doing that I noticed that there was a strange looking ‘growth’ below the vent.

Having Googled I think it’s a mal-formed navel. Anyone know if I’m right and if it’s likely to be a serious problem? And if it is, is there anything I can do about it?

They can get pasty vents from giving cold water so room temp is best.

I can't really see what we're looking at in the photo but it's probably just the umbilicus which will dry up and be fine. Check it's not a hernia but even if it is there's very little you can do in such a small animal.
