    This is my two week old leghorn chick. She had a little bit of pasty but so I cleaned her up and she seems fine she plays eats everything. However her bottom is very swollen what should I do?![​IMG]

    Is she pooping? Can we see a picture of her and her friend so we can compare their sizes?

    She is pooping, runny and dark brown. I clean her a few times a day so she doesn't get pasty again. I'm freaking out..

    I am going to guess the 'swollen' one is a meat chick. Where did you get her from?
