My 5 day old RIR chick (male) just got this poopy butt, like just within the past day. I went to clean it just a few minutes ago and found this weird red bump, almost looking like a little tumor. I tried cleaning the poop around it with warm water but the bump started to bleed, so I left it alone. He eats and drinks regularly, but since I have 20 other chicks at the moment, I haven't been able to look at him specifically. His stool that I cleaned looked normal, but maybe if it was sticking to his butt it wasn't...? Their bedding is just paper towels for now, as they were eating the pine shavings I had in this afternoon. They eat medicated starter food and drink regular water, although yesterday I had they on some vitamin water. Can I point antibiotic ointment on it, or not? I just had two chicks die today. One a little runt and another BR by a mysterious death. (Could it have been the pine shavings?) I really don't want any more to die, so any help will be appreciated.
