    Ya, this read is a crack up. But why does everyone say he? Sounds more like a she to me, and one that you will want to watch closely come laying time.

    I had the same problem with one of my little chicks. I applied the Prep H several times a day and the swelling went down and she was back to normal within a few days.

    Just put a little dab on a Q tip and put it around the vent.

[​IMG] Haha and I'm glad everyone is enjoying my gross little beast [​IMG] I swear it's showing me it's butt just to torment me. I went down to give them some treats, the other orp. and my frizzle came running over eyes bright and that little beast came running over then turned around to eat it's peach, making sure it's rump was fully exposed. That's why I'm calling it a boy too I guess, girls wouldn't be intentionally nasty, and I'm sure he is!!

    Someone please help me! My baby chick has a protruding vent just like the first pictures, and she's very small, we've had her for about a week now. She didn't grow much from the time we bought her to now and it's really freaking me out, especially because she has pasty butt. I just don't know what to do. My baby's drinking enough water and eating enough but she won't lie down to sleep. It's almost as if she can't and this concerns me because she falls asleep standing. I really need help! I'm just hoping she doesn't die...and i can't cull her, it would just kill me.[​IMG]

    If it's any help, the little chick in the picture was small and had pasty but for about two weeks before he "grew out of it" and turned into a gorgeous, HUGE rooster. With this little guy I just wiped the pasty off his butt about 4-5 times a day and applied a little Preparation H once a day. And as far as sleeping standing up? What are you using for bedding? Hope she gets better!

    So happy to read this turned out well! My little one week old faverolle has this exact problem. She's had pasty butt since I got her, so every day I have to check on her. Can't wait for her to look normal. Thank you guys!
