Ouch ----- poor baby with a sore tuschy. Is there such a thing as pampers for chickies?
You might want to dust a little Aeromycin powder on her hiney (some will absorb through skin, especially if she's raw there) or add some to water for a few days to help her out in case she's got any infection causing the swelling.
