    I just brought home a chick that my daughter wanted, we are first time chick owners! We knew it had some clogging on its rear. I thought it would be easyy enough to wash and fix it up. well, it has a long tube like of flesh. I'm really concerned because of the length, then at the base it is really red. Im theinking of apply ky jelly for a natural moistener and see how it goes.. any thoughts? I read some of the other postings on chick protrusion, but that was like a bubble concerned to what this looks like. we will try to get a pic and see if anyone can identify.. Please help save Little Steve or Stevie!!
