I have a 3 day old chick who has pasted up. I cleaned the area and her vent is clear but I can't get the poop off. I have been trying with a a wet cotton ball. She gets very stressed. I am afraid it will build up again. I may have got the umbilical cord wet too. I read that you can give them oatmeal but it doesn't give a recipe (do I cook it or give it uncooked). I'm so worried about her!

Soak his little butt in warm water. It will come off eventually.
