    When you "pulled" the poop off, did you literally just PULL it off? You should always wet, wipe, wet, wipe and it will start to come off very easily without hurting the chick. Hope the little one makes it.

    I usually run their little butts under a little stream of warm water until the poop softens up and comes off. A little baby oil on a Q-Tip works well too. Make sure she is dried off and doesn't get chilled.
