    I was doing a photo shoot with my new babies, and the oldest who is three days tried to poo and couldn't. I read putting molasses in the water can help is that true? Any other ideas?

    Okay, so I watched her, and she managed after a few tries. Should I worry though that she had trouble?

    Pick her up and check her for pasty butt. Sometimes their vent get covered in poop and needs to be cleaned. Warm water and a washcloth.
