Looks like a bit of pasty butt. You've got to get that vent cleared. Use a warm, damp paper towel and gently wipe away the poo that is blocking the vent.

Keep the vent clear, that's all that can really be done. Do you have a thermometer in the brooder? They may be a bit too hot or a bit too cool.

Looking at your pic it could be mushy chick (infection of the umbilical area). I would separate the chick from the others so they can't peck at this area, f they see the blood it will become a blood bath. Maybe put it with another quiet chick out of the group. Here is an article to check out ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/mushy-chick-disease-yolk-sack-infection-omphalitis

Good luck with the chick fl.gif

Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-
