She is red and swollen but poop looks normal
I have red Sex Link approximately two weeks old they're eating only chick starter one of them is having trouble passing her poop she is red and swollen but nothing is poking out I don't know what to do please help
I am glad you joined us! But I am so sorry about your chicks! I would check out the ER forum:
I really don't know what to tell you since this has never happened to me, but there are folks here that will help you! Best wishes!
Hello from Kansas, Kayla lynn, and ! Great to have you in our flock! I agree with posting in the Emergencies Forum. Hope it all works out okey for your Red Star! Best wishes!
Does she have Pasty butt, where dried poo blocks her vent? If so please check out "Pasty Butt," by putting that in the search box and see if her symptoms match your chick.
Does she drink enough water? She may benefit from having some watermelon to give her more fluids. Is she a lively chick, that runs around with the others. Usually exercise keeps things moving.
As already mentioned, check for pasty butt and if that's not the problem, try posting on the ER forum.
Good luck and hope all is well!
Welcome to BYC!
She may just be clogged up try putting Sav-a-Chick Probotics for digestive heath in her water and a few drops a yogurt will help too.
