My 2 day old chick keeps getting pasted vent

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi, my two day old chick keeps getting pasted vent. I have 6 chicks total, one gets it every day. Iʻm out there everyday at least two times a day cleaning her. None of the other chicks get it as often as her. What do I do?

Sometimes the temperature is either too hot or too cold so check what it is. I haven't tried it yet but I've read adding some raw cornmeal to their feed can help as well as adding some greens.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Also, try smoothing coconut oil on this chick's vent. With having to clean it that often, it's liable to get irritated and swollen. The coconut oil will soothe, heal, kill bacteria and fungus, and help the poop to keep from sticking so much.

Mix 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to a quart of water, that cleared up my chicks in just a few days! Continue cleaning her when she gets pasted and rub a little bit of coconut oil on it, until the ACV clears her up. smile.png
