Hi, I'm new! On to more serious matters though....I just purchased 3 beautiful chicks who are 11 days old now (wow, where does the time go?).... My biggest seemingly strongest chick has a scabby thing on it's butt. I am checking daily for cakey poop...and this is the first time I noticed anything. At first I thought it was poop and pulled some off when I realized it was kind of raw underneath. I suppose the poop could just be making the skin look raw by irritating it. Or maybe it is a scab. It's really hard to tell. Other than that the chick is eating, drinking and moving around like normal. She does seem to be straining a bit to poop though (some poop was coming out, but she just kind of pooped half of the way). Man, I was so sick of being pooped on, and now all I want is for her to do that. Do any of you have an idea of what it could be? Is there anything I can put on her but to soothe it? Also, I've probably used the word "poop" far too many times for a first post.
