    I recently bought some bantam chicks, that are only a few days old I suppose,and one of them is having trouble pooping. Her vent is red and swollen and she hasn't passed anything in quite a while. She is not pasty, I've kept a special eye out incase that may be the cause. She eats and drinks normal but when she last pooped she chirped loudly as if she was in pain and has not done it since. She looks very weak when she is sleeping. Please help :(

    Hi and welcome to BYC.

    I'd strongly suggest that you re-post your question in the "Emergencies, diseases, injuries and cures" forum. I have no experience of the issue you describe with which to help you out I'm afraid.

    All the best

    Yes, please post at the ER threads asap. We may have less folks than usual manning the forums because of the coming holiday.
