    This chick is just 2-3 days old, and can't walk... after examining it, this is what I see. Any ideas?

    I treated for pasty butt, but I am not sure that is what this is...
    Cleaned and put vaseline on it after taking this pic...

    Sorry the picture is bad, but it was taken with my phone, and I was trying to get close

    Quote:This was my suspicion, but upon close inspection (and I MEAN CLOSE) It appears to just be swollen... Like the whole butt area, not the vent... Confusing, I know... But... That is all I can think of to describe it... [​IMG]
