Hello everyone. This is the first time of ever raising chicks. Thankfully I have learned a lot searching through posts. My chicks are 9 days old. This afternoon I noticed one of the Mottled Houdan chicks had poo stuck to its rearend. I gently used a warm washcloth and cleaned it. However, after I was done I noticed his/her, um, well, anus is protruding out a little bit. And it it sort of looks like it is pulsating. Is this anything to be worried about? As soon as I put the chick back into the trough he/she started cleaning its rearend. The other chicks are fine. I clean their trough twice daliy with a kitty litter scoop. Change their water twice daily with lukewarm water. Clean their food container once daily. Once a week I replace the shavings with fresh. I use pine shavings. The chick food is Purina Mills Start & Grow Sunfresh recipe. Also one more thing, when I was holding the chick its heartbeat was very elevated and it kept closing his/her eyes like they were drowsy. Do you think the little chick will be alright? Are these things I should worry about? Thank you.
