Vent question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am new to raising back chicks and I have a little one with a swollen looking vent. She had some stool on her fluff so I cleaned her up, dried her off and put Vaseline on her vent. Right after she made a horrible racket and then had a bm. This is what she looked like after. Is this normal. Is there anything I need to do for her.

Coconut oil is superior to Vaseline in that it has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, as well as soothing the pain better.


You might want to see if she will take a sip of liquified coconut oil if she peeps loudly when pooping. That would indicate she's struggling with constipation.

Coconut oil is awesome. Our day old (now a week) had a prolapsed vent. We alternated applying coconut oil & preparation H. Swelling and redness is gone. Vent is starting to go back in.
