Hi Everyone- This is my first time raising chicks. I just picked up two chicks and one of them seemed to have poop stuck to its underside like it sat in it. Not pasty butt; it's vent is clean and clear. I watched both of them poop when I picked them up from the feed store as well. I tried washing it off with warm water and thats when it detached a bit and I realized that it wasn't just poop. Did some research and it seems like it's a umbilical cord hernia but not as extreme as some cases I read where the intestines were attached. The more I look at it, the more it looks like it's a big scab at this point that I partially took off. I cut off the little dried string piece that looks like it would be the umbilical cord because my other chick was trying to pull it. I put some antibiotic ointment on it as well. I didn't know if there was anything else I could do? I am concerned of an infection. Didn't know if I could add some oregano essential oil to their water as precautionary? The chick is eating and drinking. Acting as normal as a little chick would I assume. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
