I'm not very experienced but know you're so worried so I wanted to reply. When I last turned my chicks over to check their bums I saw only one hole.

How are things going?

well thats what i thought too but is the "vent" where everything comes out? (eggs, poo, ect.) and i think one of them might die because when i washed off the poo there was this weird hole underneath...

Yes, one hole. Maybe the second is where the umbilical cord was.

Yup only one hole! Be very gentle when you clean pasty butt, use warm water and don't pull, just wipe. After it's clean you can use a bit of Prep H to help with inflammation until the redness and swelling goes away. Also watch for other chicks pecking it, they can be ruthless!
