    I have a 5 day old Salmon Faverolle male who appears to have a prolapsed vent. I am doing everything I can to get him through (hemorrhoid ointment, witch hazel, anti-bacterial ointment, Blu-Kote and separation from other chicks that pick at him).

    He is eating, drinking and pooping and seems to have a fair level of energy but he peeps and peeps non-stop. I am brand new to chickens, he is my first Faverolle and my first boy and my first health issue. The other thing is that he is about two third the size of my other 5 day olds that arrived with him.

    Is the vocalization associated with pain or discomfort? Is the smaller size significant? Or is he just a noisy little rooster? Does

    anyone have any insight that they can share?
