This is our first time raising chicks. This morning our favorite Araucana seemed lethargic and we found droppings stuck to her, but still wet and sticky, nothing hard. I cleaned her off but the opening is still swollen. I read the forums and tried giving her yolk from a hard boiled egg but she wouldn't eat it. (The others went nuts.) I also saw about giving them probiotic yogurt which I may try to run out and find today. (Thank goodness Walmart doesn't close on Easter!) Any other suggestions? Are we destined to lose this chick? We did put electrolytes in their water for the first 3 days but now it's just plain water. We've had them 6 days. Thanks for any suggestions!
