chick with distended abdomen-please help
I have a 1 Â½ week old chick with a very distended abdomen. At a couple of days it I saw some dried poop on her vent and gently got it off and cleaned her with warm water cloth. Today her abdomen is very swollen. I Just gave her a few drops of olive oil orally and used a tiny pet nursing bottle to put olive oil into her vent. I also held a cloth with warm water against her and gently massaged her abdomen.
She is the "only child" of a broodyÂthey are in a pen on the grass. I had noticed a few days ago that she was not eating as much or as active as other chicks but attributed that to the only child thing.
Is there anything else that I can do? She looks bad. Please help.
