    Just got new 3 day old chicks and one had poop dried below her vent. Cleaned it up and checked an hour later. She had more poop stuck on her vent. Cleaned it up and her little vent looks swollen and the top part protrudes. She's still able to poop. Waddles a little and is eating and drinking. Please tell me this isn't a prolapsed vent. What can I do for her!? I've been giving probiotics from day one! [​IMG]

    Check for mites.

    Until then,clean the blood etc up,then add Vaseline around the vent.
