Constipation 2 1/2 weeks old.


May 16, 2015
I noticed my chick was constipated last night. I came here and found the enema cure, which helped her poop. However, she has been pecking at her backside continuously. Do you think she may still be backed up? I'm wondering if I should do another enema. I haven't noticed her trying to go poop, but the pecking is constant. Could coconut oil or some other remedy help? We're first time chicken owners.
Welcome to BYC. I'm not sure what enema cure you did to a 2 1/2 week old chick. It would be much easier to give the chick applesauce to eat. Applesauce acts as a mild laxative in chickens.
Chicks lose fluff when growing. It's possible the fluff might be irritating her, not much can be done about it.
