My chick wont poop!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have this chick she is only a couple days old, I don't know the breed. Anyways she was fine two days ago, but as of yesterday I noticed she was sleeping more then the others, and wasn't eating or drinking unless I made her. So I thought I should bring her inside to keep a closer eye on her, and I noticed she peed a little bit she hasn't pooped in 12 hours.
I've tried putting her in warm water, and massaging it.... But I don't know how or where to massage her!
I know it's not pasty butt, because she doesn't have poop coming out of her.
I have gotten up every hour on the hour to make her drink lots of water and eat a little bit of food.
In her water I put molasses, because I've heard it is a natural laxative, but still no poop
She is breathing heavy and every now and then, she chirps
I don't know what to do anymore can someone please help me???

Hi and welcome to BYC. I would suggest reposting your question on the ER forum - http://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

 

Good luck

Did you check the baby for pasty butt? Mine had the same issue, look up images on this site or on google and see if its the issue. Do Not Pull It Out, you allow luke warm water run over the chicks bottom to soften the back up and it should loosen its self up. You can rub it to help it break off but not roughly!!

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele
