    This is so upsetting to me!
    We have Cornish X that are one month old. Lost a couple at the start. (The vet thought there were serious internal problems)

    However, yesterday I went out to do chores and found one with a VERY bloody vent! His insides were poking out of his vent. My fiance tried pushing them back in a little but the chick pushed them back out. Any idea the cause? We did put him out of his misery but we want to make sure something like this NEVER happens again!! The others are doing great! (22 now)
    Thank you so much for any ideas!
