    Have a week old chick with a prolapsed rectum (will post a picture when I get home) and I was wondering about some remedies. I read about soaking in a warm bath to relax, applying prep H, and keeping quiet in a separate box for the time being. But is here anything to prevent this from happening? All of our chicks have had poopy butts almost everyday so we have to soak them to clean them up.. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks all!
