    I took on the responsibility of a chick who has Spraddle leg she is about 3 days old and I have had her for about two days. I have wrapped her legs with a bandaid because of the Spraddle leg which i think is getting a little better. She refuses to eat and drink unless I dip her beak in the water, bit she then still only drinks a little. I have not found any poop in the cage for 24 hours so I looked at her vent and it seemed swollen, so I held her in warm water for about 15 minutes and dried her of. She still hasn't pooped. What do I do?
    Thank you so much for reading.
