    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.
