    I have a 3 week old chick that has been acting very strange lately. He acts like he is trying to poop but nothing comes out. His vent is protruding alot like he is trying to push something big out and the skin around the vent is bright pink. He is eating and drinking fine but I think he is in quite a bit of pain. Any idea whats wrong with him???
