So I got 2 new chicks , One as a replacement for the one that died. Found out most of the other barred rock from where i got him died too I think he was sick when she started to peck him or whatever, Anyways. They replaced the one and I got an extra so that I woudnt have to go thru haveing one chick by its self and peeping again like last night, In case atilla didnt put up with new chicks ect. I got home after a short maybe 10 minutes after picking them up from the store I got eatch one out and gave it a brief head to toe befor putting it in the brooder, and I thought I saw poo on the silkies bum but it didnt wipe off and it left a speck of blood on the tissue I used to wipe his bum cuase i thought he had pasty butt or what not . why would a 5 day old chick have a swollen puffy black bum that bleeds a tiny bit when wiped with tissues tell me silkies have black skin. and its not like narcotic or soemthing It has been a few hours and it seems less swollen so Ill just keep checking on him every few hours I dont want to bug them to much right now though they just got there red light and I am hopeing thery resting better now.
