    I just received about 70 chicks and there is one w/ a protruding vent. Prolapse? No, it's all on the inside. there's discharge and it REEKS!
    Thanks, I'll post pics if I have time.

    Sounds like your little one may have become constipated/impacted -- what color/consistency is the discharge?
