Azygous, do you think as she is straining and nothing is coming out, because she is constipated now? Or do you think swelling is blocking her vent? Colors? Redness, whitish areas? Pics would be awesome if possible. You are not a screwup! You are trying to take care of so many things and you are worried about this little chick. You are obviously, a kind, compassionate person who cares about the animals under your care. Do not beat yourself up . Some things are out of your control. If it hadn't been the feeder, it would have been something else. I know you needed to vent, but no negative self-talk. Don't want you to start believing it.
