    Last night, i saw that one of my chicks has a sort of ruptured rear end. i have worries from past experiences, but it isn't bleeding, just dry. her feathers are sort of dry and brown

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/uploads/46440_img_5754.jpg

    There is a little thing sticking out of, i can't tell, but i looks like a feather that hasn't opened up yet or something. its right below the pink spot that is her bottom. i am worried about this.


    If you know what this is is or if its serious, please reply. i will put some bag balm on to help the dryness.
