    We have 11 week old chicks. 2 easter eggers, a rhode island red, a buff laced polish and a barred Plymouth rock. I've found lots of valuable info here so I have decided to join so I can post a health problem I have with my BPR. She has a swollen bottom. Anyone know what could be causing this and how to help? She's far too young to be egg bound. She's eating, drinking & pooping OK but is not quite as energetic as normal and has had her beak slightly open. Just noticed it yesterday am.

    Want to welcome you to the site. I have a suggestion for you. Try to get a picture of the swollen bottom and post your question on the "Emergencies/Diseases/" topic. You'll get lots of good advice there. If you can't get a picture, describe the age of the chick, and the condition. I'm sorry I don't have the answer for you. If the area becomes raw, put neosporin on it and isolate her. Best of luck! [​IMG]
