Is the liquid coming out of the vent or from the umbilicus (navel) that is under the vent? I would worry about mushy chick disease (omphalitis.) If it is that the chick won't live, but look at the vent and try to make sure that is is not just diarrhea. Also, don't pull off scabs or poop, but try to wash the poop off with warm water on a paper towel.

Thank ypu so much, i think thats what she has. Iys scabbed up now and shes moving aroumd like a happy little chicken but will start to cry very loudly. I cleaned her off so do i just need to wait and see if she dies or not?
