Hello, I have 5 chicks who are almost a month old and I just noticed some redness (maybe bits of blood?) at the base of tail feathers below vent and maybe a protracted vent. (Pic attached) I have been watching them and no one seems to be pecking at her nor have I seen her peck at herself. All of her behavior seems normal re eating drinking and activity. Is there something I should be doing? Thank you so much

It had one last year that was similar. It eventually became more normal at around 3 months of age. I was worried it wouldn't for a long time. Mine had chronic pasty butt during it's first few weeks.
