I know threads like this have been posted countless times, but I'm gonna post mine anyways. I have read through a lot of the others, but I'm just not sure. I have a meat chick that is a little over 1 week old. I noticed this morning that he was standing funny and his vent didn't look right, so I went in to investigate. He didn't even try to run away like they usually do, so I picked him up. He had a HUGE knot just behind his severely swollen vent. I could see the giant ball of poo because his vent was stretched so far it was open. I brought him down to the house (their brooder is in the coop) and started trying to help him out. I mixed Karo syrup in warm water and tried to get him to drink it, I squirted some warm olive oil into his vent, I soaked his bottom in warm water (which really seemed to help) and when the poo was softened I started gently "milking" (for lack of a better word) the poo out of him. I got a lot out, but couldn't get it all. I soak him for a bit longer, shot some more olive oil up his vent and pet him in a pet carrier, lined with paper. He does not have access to food right now. He only had water with karo syrup and olive oil in it. He is less swollen now, but still blocked up. He is drinking, but not enough to make me happy. What else can I do for him?
