Hello !! I have a constipated chickie, she is 2 weeks old. At first, she had pasty butt, and i puth warm cloth last night to clean it. Her butt hole seems swollen. this morning the swelling subsided a little but when I touched the behind, she screamed. She eats and drinks and sleeps alright. I put ACV in her water. However, just now I noticed a bit of gasping. I kept waking her up, and she finally pooped! The poop is very sticky and I used toilet paper to wipe her butt. Here is the picture. Is it blood???? She is now eating and jumping happily after poop. I hope she is holding on! She is a trooper, she was almost gone once! What i wanna know: -why the gasping?? -what caused the constipation? Pasty butt? -why the poop has that string of red substance? What is it? -is this life theeatening? -what shouls i do????? Right now she seems fine. But i am afraid to go to sleep and find her dead in the morning! Help!
