    I have a chick thats 5 weeks old he has pasty but and his poop is white. He is not eating or drinking very much and is very lethargic. What is wrong with him? What can I do to help him? The chicks are on medicated chick feed. Is coccidia still a possibility?

    When I find one with poopy butt..I gently press their abdomen to release any poop that may have been blocked from coming out. They usually perk up after that. If the poop is not released it will poison their system and they will die.
