    My chick is having pooping problems. I have gave him medicine in his water it still doesnt help. If antone knows what wrong I would appreciate you telling me. Sorry im new at this. Every time she poops it sticks to her bottom. After awhile it will close her vent up. Her poop is light brown to white. Im feeding her regular starter feed and a little grit.

    You need to give us more information: tell us what appears to be wrong with it.

    * Is she constipated or does she have diarrhea? What is the color of the poo, and what consistancy? Describe by comparing it with something familiar, if that's easier-- like runny egg yolks, water with chalk swirls, chocolate syrup, kinda thick water, etc. What are you feeding? What is she doing that doesn't seem normal or what is she NOT doing that you think she ought to, compared to your other chicks.

    Quote:I think that's the concern.

    For pasty butt, clean the area with warm water and then dap on some olive oil around the vent with a Q-tip. If you are giving sugar in the water, stop and just give water. Stop any treats and just give chick starter. Good luck!
