    I think one of my Buff Orpingtons is possibly constipated. I've looked through here at older posts but nothing describes the exact issue she's having. She is going but she is having a really hard time at it. Her poor little rectum protrudes when she pushes. She's just a chick so she's not egg bound, and she does't have poo stuck to her. I've read about giving molasses water as a laxative. Should I try this? If so how do I give it to just one chicken?
