    yesterday i heard a little cheeping noise from under a broody hen and discovered a new chick. twenty minutes later another hatched and that was it for the night. i checked on them this morning and the first chick didn't look right so i checked her out. she had a couple of fire ants on her eye that had a little blood on it, after picking her up to remove the ants i noticed she had something hanging out her butt. i got her to drink a little water and is under a lamp for now but is moving very little. is there anything i can do for it?
