Few day old chicks have swollen vents / bleeding - Page 2

post #11 of 14

I would put the antibiotics in their feed or water what ever it is design for, and keep the vent area cleaned and Neosporin on it. 

I live in Northeastern New Mexico. Live on a 2.5 acres with my husband of 38 yrs.(husband pass away 6/13/16), 2 dogs, 2 cats,    I have SLC, Blue laced Red Wy, Partridge Cochin, Blue, Black & White Cochins, Americanas, Cuckoo Marans Roo, Dominque Roo,  Blue Bar Roo, Buff Orps, Lavender Wy, Black & Blue French Cooper Marans, French Wheaton Marans, Cuckoo Marans , Dominque , Blue bar  Whiting...

You may want to move that food and water as far from the heat as possible. The heat lamp will warm that water, and drinking is one way a chick will cool itself.
