    Has anyone ever had this happen my chicken has been struggling to poop,she strains and only a little poop comes out and water shes been eating and drinking and acting completely normal other than shes not pooping right. I looked at her bottom and do not see anything stuck to it the feathers under her vent are wet though. Ive been giving her apple cider vinegar in her water also watermelon. Im not sure what else to do any help would be greatly appreciated oh she is not laying yet nor is her face very red so i dont think its egg bound but im not sure these are my first chickens. Thanks
