    Is she straining, or is it runny?

    Otherwise she may be relieved that it finally comes out??? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    One of my silkies did the same thing. She drove me crazy because she "cried" and chirped a lot, and I was always trying to figure out what I could do for her- I tried a lot! Her toes were floppy and bent under, so I treated her with little toe boots to straighten them out- no help. I treated for bacterial problems with meds in the water- no help. More heat, less heat, more space, less space etc etc. Nothing made her stop.

    I finally gave up. I put them out in the coop, and she continued her noisy ways there. I eventually gave her up due to her toes being bent under and getting infected- maybe that way why she always chirped loudly.

    Maybe it was just her personality.

    Have you tried feeling around the vent, checking maybe if it is an internal blockage. If it feels very hard or if you feel a big lump, maybe you should get him checked out by a vet. [​IMG]

    If not, it might just be the way he is. [​IMG]

    Let us know how that goes. [​IMG]
