Help! Pasty butt

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My chick has pasty butt, I've cleaned it and applied olive oil. The other chicks are pecking at her now, what should I do? (She's currently sleeping in my lap on a heating pad)

Are they picking at her bum?

Is it red?

After you soak/wash - don't pull off the poo try to dissolve it - dry her well then apply a little Bluekote or Pick No More, this will hide the redness. Once that dries you can put a little oil on the downy to help keep the poo from sticking.

What is the temp in your brooder and what type of foods/treats are you giving?

Any pictures of the new babies and your brooder setup?
