    Hi! New Mama here!

    I just got this Silkie last night, and I noticed after I got her home and today that her vent seems to be "big" (this is the first time at chicks for me, so I apologize about the best descriptions) and it will pulsate.

    Is this normal? Is she just stressed getting into her new environment? I wasn't sure if it was because her poo was getting stuck in her feathers a little, so I trimmed those lower ones.


    Thank you in advance!!
