    That's exactly what I've been doing! Thanks for the confirmation and encouragement to just keep on keeping on! :)

    2 week old Seabright... protruding vent?

    I have only bantams, and I've had probably over 200 chicks at this point. Never had any other look like that, and the other Seabrights I had didn't look like that either. You're right though...it's protruding some but not to the point of prolapse.

    2 week old Seabright... protruding vent?

    Between Google and this site, I believe this to be a protruding vent on my 2 week old Silver Seabright. She's not growing like the others either, but she's eating and drinking just fine (though she perpetually needs her butt cleaned, obviously.) Any suggestions on what I can do for her? I'm...

    Apologies for the graphic poop picture...

    They're only 4 days old...all bantams...Silkies, 2 Americanas, 1 Seabright, and 1 Polish.

    Apologies for the graphic poop picture...

    I have about 15 chicks right now, and I have no idea which which this came, but it was just about 5 minutes ago, and it doesn't look good. Thoughts?

    Impacted Crop? 1week old Plymouth Bantam...help!

    I can't get him to open his tiny mouth for a dropper...not to mention for coconut oil, but I'll try! No pictures of poop, and I can't say that I can now identify which "plops" we're discussing, but they weren't watery...just normal I'd say. I can get my hands on some Corid today, and we do...

    Impacted Crop? 1week old Plymouth Bantam...help!

    Seems about the same if not slightly more engorged. That area last night felt like a water balloon. This morning, it feels less "waterlike" and more fleshy? I can feel nothing inside it when massaging except what feels like the tiniest grain or something or other...not sure if that even means...

    Impacted Crop? 1week old Plymouth Bantam...help!

    We use essentially shop lights during the day, and at night they gave only the red/heat lamp (through they seem to stay rather active even with only that.) I have always had the grit mixed in the feed as recommended by Privett Hatchery, and I've had over 100 chicks without issue until this one...

    Impacted Crop? 1week old Plymouth Bantam...help!

    Haven't even transitioned over to pine shavings...still using just paper towels as substrate for at least another 2 week. Feeding chick starter from IFA and chick grit in 10:1 ratio as recommended.

    Impacted Crop? 1week old Plymouth Bantam...help!

    This little one has been fine until we just noticed this today... about 10 minutes ago. The area seems swollen (sort of). The chicks is still eating and drinking, but he doesn't seem to be as active as he was before. I'm guessing this is an impacted crop, but I have no idea what to do! Please help!

    I should know this, but...

    From Welp. I didn't order any of the others you mentioned except Silver Seabright.

    I should know this, but...

    What color foot should the Silver Have? I ordered 5 of them, and I have 5 chicks that look just like that one. Other options in my order are Plymouth and Americana. Otherwise just Silkies, D'Uccle, and Frizzle Cochins (all feather-legged) so those aren't options.

    I should know this, but...

    How about this one? Americana? (Looks like an EE to me, but they say "Americana".

    What a coincidence, I ordered 5 Silver Seabrights! Lol :)
