    I have a 3 week old chick that seems to be having a serious problem. Over the course of about a week now she has had trouble pooping. It had been a couple of days since I heard her but tonight she was having trouble again. She chirps really hard and you can see the poop half way out and her pushing. I caught a video of it tonight so that I could post it and hopefully get her help. I posted it on my family website on it's own page. The only link on the page is for the video. I appreciate any and all help here.

    I have tried smooshed bananna but she was not intrested to try it. I also tried yogurt and again nothing. So, then I put some sand in the cage and they love it but it didn't help.

    The video is 52 seconds long and 1.52 megs. And it's at http://www.mjsnow.com/chickvideo
