I have a blue orpington chick who is now 1 and a half weeks old. I bought her from a private breeder. The next day after I brought her home she was screaming and pushing really hard. I assumed she was constipated? Maybe from changing locations and became dehydrated. So i cleaned her up, put her bum in warm water to help relax the muscles, gave her a little olive oil. She fell asleep in my hand for a bit. I also lubed her behind up a bit. After digesting the oil, things seemed to be moving along better. She was still straining really hard just to get out soft poo. I thought this was strange. The next couple days I could see that she was very irritated all around her vent. I guessed her skin was irritated from all the straining. She eventually pulled all the tail down and abdomen down out. Her back end is completely bear. Now were back to serious straining. Every time she strains, I feel like she's getting closer to a prolapse. I feel awful!! I read on here to use the rounded end of a pin to help pull out whatever is stuck...she doesn't mind me doing this. It's like its relieving her. BUT all the poo is soft????? I'm beginning to think there may be an internal problem here? All the other chicks from this hatch seem healthy. So far no chicks have bothered her. I can't really separate her. What else can I do??
