New time chicken owner... I have one baby chick who has been making a weird noise that pretty much sounds like a cricket chirping every time she tries to pass stool. I watched her a few times and only a little comes out and she really struggles to pass stool for about 1-2mins. There is no blood present in the stool but her vent was swollen and slightly protruding. I soaked her rear end into a warm water for 10mins today and she passed a large amount of stool. After a few hours its back to almost the same. Should I soak her rear end again or what else could I try? I have the probiotic and electrolyte packet but it says to mix it in a gallon of water and I didn't think that it necessary to give to the 11 other healthy chickens...so should I separate her from the others to get her to drink the gallon of water?
