    I came home and I saw a chick peeping very loudly, its little Vent was swollen and red, he is very tired from trying to squeeze the poop out, me and my dad pushed a lot of it out, what do I do, I am already attached to this little guy

    I had a chick that was constipated. My vet told me to soak her butt in warm water, massage her back end by her vent, and put lube, ky, on her vent. I did this for a couple days. Twice a day. After a couple days she was back to normal. Hope it works out for you.
