Hello, everyone! I'm very excited to join and am so sad my first post is a worrisome one but I want to make sure our chicks are okay. We purchased our first 6 chicks and 2 ducklings. The ducklings are doing great. The chicks seem fine too, but today I noticed that three of them have a crusty, patchy belly/underside. Even with hanging the water they seem to always spill it. I clean the brooder out one, sometimes twice, a day. What could be causing the irritation? Is the brooder too wet when they decide to take a dip?
