    Hi everyone, whilst checking on our chicks today we noticed one seemed to be having a problem with its bum, it looks like some type of irritation which is causing the chick to pick at it. It basically looks like it has wet bum. At the time we thought it may be constipated because its bum was sort of pulsating like it was trying to go, but since then it has pooed. Seems to still be eating a little and the rest of the chicks seem completely fine. Anyone had problems like this with chicks before? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
