I have a 4 day old chick who has been acting normal up until last night. All night we head loud squawking like she was in pain and yesterday I had noticed she has a swollen vent, had some leaking bowels but I decided to leave my chicks alone for the first few days.
This morning I made the decision to take her out and rinse her bottom with warm water to loosen up the residue, which seems to be a mixture of clear fluid and a little bit of poop. We have 17 chicks so I hadn't noticed if this particular chick had been eating until today- and she is isn't doing anything but exclusively standing in the corner, refusing to eat or drink (at least today) and on and off squawking (as if still in pain). Any suggestions as to what I should do??
