Chick with swollen vent (4 messages)

I received my chicks on sunday, and this morning I noticed that one chick had a really swollen vent and the fuzz around it was gone. We separated the chick and gave it its own food and water. Is this fatal and what can I do to help stop/prevent it?

One of our three day old Blue Cochins is having the same problem. We have soaked her rear in warm water and have tried to remove the impaction. We have put her in a separate box in the brooder so she isn't getting picked on and have treated the affected area with neosporin. I talked to our vet and he said we are doing about everything he would do.

Use a wet cloth to wipe the poop off their vent.
