    One of my Rhode Island Red baby chicks seems to be having trouble pooping. She chirps loud and kind of shakes sometimes when she goes. I make sure her bottom is clean so nothing is blocking.
    She is eating (maybe not as much as the others) and drinking water.
    She is so sweet and not very old (a month or so)
    Anything I can do to help her?
    Maybe constipted?

    I have heard that giving baby electrolyte liquid will help out with a sick chickie. Hope it feels better soon.
