    Got this little chick on 4/16 from the TSC and this little one has been an up hill battle from day one. The second day we had her/him it was lethargic so I gave it some electrolytes and water every hour. Then I noticed it wasn't looking right and the poo was building up on its bottom. Every time I checked on it we had to wash the bottom off. Now the vent looks like this...what is going on here. First chick I have ever had that has been like this.

    Can you describe what you are seeing until you can get a picture to post? Does it have a prolapsed vent?

    I have never seen a prolapsed vent before, so I am not 100% sure if this is what is going on.

    She isn't growing very fast, I don't know what breed she is just that she is a bantam. This is the other bantam that was bought that the same time as her, for a size comparison.
