    She is leaking urine, and yelps when she poops. Her crop felt a little full, but I gave her some oil and massaged it and it went down. She is eating and drinking, and seems totally fine except the fact that she keeps leaking urine. I have washed her off several times, and actually put her under some heat. I tried yogurt and she refuses it. I put some quick chik in her water, but is there anything else I can do?

    Chickens don't have a bladder their urine comes out on the top of their poop its white could she have laid an egg internally.

    I think she might be a he, and either way could they even lay an egg at 5 weeks?

    Quote:Sorry did not see the age of this chick. I am not sure, maybe offer some grit if she/he has eaten anything that should help break it up and maybe help pass what ever it is. Good luck.
