    You can wash the chicks bum and but vaseline on it's bum. It will help the poo slide off.

    What are you feeding? How old? If the poop can not come out normally in causes a blockage. Inturn causing pain.

    You need to keep her bum clean. You may have to wash her many times. I have yet to have a chick die from it. It usually fixes itself in a coule days.
    How long has this been going on/

    Quote:Your post is a little confusing. In your first post you state that it is NOT blocking the chicks vent: 'not on the part that the poop comes out.' If her vent is not blocked, just having some poo on her rump should not be causing her any problems/pain.
