Is this Pasty Butt?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

We just got new chicks to add to our flock and noticed that one may have pasty butt. I took a Q-tip and warm water and tried to clean it. It looks like the vent is clean, but I cannot get the dried feces off of her . After cleaning her with a Q-Tip, I rubbed some olive oil on it to try to soften the poop.

 

Any advice is welcome.

No this is not pasty butt. It looks to be a problem with the umbilical cord. I have not had this problem occur in my birds so I can not give advice on what to do.

A quick soak in warm water and now she's OK :)
