It will be okay. The calcium they absorb from dairy products isn't terribly high.

Honestly, I think most of the pasty butt issues has to do with stress +/- an underdeveloped digestive tract at this age anyway (instead of coccidiosis).

They are on medicated chick feed! Thanks again everyone she seems to be doing great now. Also, my sons and I put together a tiny makeshift covered run and took the girls outside today for the first time. They LOVED it!! It was not hard to pick them up either once they were outside they would practically climb on us.
