    My husband and I bought five chicks last week, we are loving it! They are growing so fast. We have only had one minor issue...last night my husband noticed that our welsummers vent look slightly puffy, and she had dried poo all stuck in her feathers. We werent sure whether it was a prolapsed vent or pasty butt, so we cleaned her off well with warm water and applied some horse chestnut cream to her puffy vent, she looks great today :),
