    I started off with six silkie chicks from mpc within a day or two 3 died the three healthiest lived the biggest named zoey had a little poop stuck to her vent area another one walked up while I was watching and pulled off the poo zoey peeped like she was in pain and her vent started to bleed it has slowed now and she is acting normal running around eating drinking but I'm really worried what do I do!!!!

    If its just a small cut, I would just put some neosporin (none containing any pain killer or caines) on a couple times a day for the next few days.
