    I have three week old baby chicks. One of which had pasty butt, so I put a probiotic in it's water. The probiotic helped regulate it's the poop, but now he seems constipated. When the chick tries to defecate the chick strains and sometimes starts chirping very loud. Any suggestions? Thanks in advanced.
