My new chick has a weird butt

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey! I need help ! I recently got 2 chicks and one of them has an odd shaped butt. I can't tell if it's a problem or not . She also walks very strange from time to time lifting her leg up very high. Doesn't seem like she is in pain. Please help!

"Weird butt" doesn't really provide information other than something in the rear quarters is not like usual.

 

Could you narrow down the area? Is it the vent you are talking about? Describe what makes it weird. Or take some pictures and post them, nice close-ups of the actual area of concern, not a portrait of the entire chicken.

 

Is anything else going on with the behavior of the chick? The leg stretching is completely normal, and so is wing stretching.

I'm trying to post a picture but I can't figure out how to do it on here . I'm new to the forum. Basically it's not her vent it's the area below it. It's very large and round, a lot different from my other chicks. hmm.png

If you want to post a picture go to "reply" and hit the picture of the mountains with the sun under "reply". You should have access to your photos from there.

Are you still unable to figure out how to post a photo? See the tool bars just above the "reply" window at the bottom of this page? See the strip that has the smiley icon? At the far left of that strip is the icon with the moon and a mountain. Clicking on it will open a window that says "embed an image" .Click on "upload files". It opens your computer files. Select your photo file and then select a photo. The rest is pretty self explanatory. it's really quite easy.
