I have a 4 day old chick who has been squawking since last night, as if in pain, unwilling to sit and rest. She has a bottom that is leaking what looks like clear fluid and maybe some residual poop left from yoke- I have noticed her drinking only once since I have been keeping an eye on her. She was not making such a fuss yesterday. She is in a brooder box with shavings/ food/ water shared with 16 other chicks- of which no one has been bothering her, yet. I have rinsed her rear with warm water and patted gently dried with paper towel in hopes that It was more of a sticky bottom issue. She is clearly uncomfortable and having a difficult time resting. I do not know how to help her or even if I can. Is there anything I can do to help??
This is her bottom near hours after completely rinsing clean her rear this morning. She is a wheaten Ameraucaua
