    The DH surprised me and brought home a new chick tonight to replace the one we lost last week [​IMG]. So along with trying to introduce the new chick to the week old ones I notice her vent sticks out a little bit more than the others. Im concerned that it may be a prolapsed vent or the start of one. I think I may just be over worried but I would like a second opinion please. The pics are bad because i cant zoom in enough to show how much more it sticks out. It sticks out about 2 cm and almost hangs down some.
