I have a constipated chickie, she is 2 weeks old. At first, she had pasty butt, and i puth warm cloth last night to clean it. Her butt hole seems swollen.
this morning the swelling subsided a little but when I touched the behind, she screamed.
She eats and drinks and sleeps alright. I put ACV in her water. However, just now I noticed a bit of gasping. I kept waking her up, and she finally pooped! The poop is very sticky and I used toilet paper to wipe her butt.
Here is the picture. Is it blood????
She is now eating and jumping happily after poop. I hope she is holding on! She is a trooper, she was almost gone once!
What i wanna know:
-why the gasping??
-what caused the constipation? Pasty butt?
-why the poop has that string of red substance? What is it?
-is this life theeatening?
-what shouls i do?????
Right now she seems fine. But i am afraid to go to sleep and find her dead in the morning!
