    I have a 10 week old Rhode Island Red chick who was getting pecked at by another chick. All the feathers were plucked off. I separated her from all the rest and applied an antibiotic cream to her wounds. That was 3 days ago and today I notice a white discharge from her rear end. I am new to having chickens and have no idea of what this could be, any help would be great. Thanks
