Baby chicks keep getting a little poo stuck to fuzz on their butts - Page 2

I tried grabbing one to soak them, and it worked, but now theyare all afraid of me:/ Will this persist forever?!

my chick had a pasty butt and I accidently pulled all the fuzz off. will it grow back?

I currently have 2 sheep (Sage and Aspen), 1 pig, 1 goat (willow), 15 chickens, 2 bunnies (Nala and Lilac), and an adorable golden doodle (Zeus).

I love this site! Only here do people have the same issues as I. I took my little fellow in the house and got the water just right and let it flow over her butt until it all washed away. Much more and she would have had a hard time pooping.

A little Apple cider vinegar in their water will help clear this up to.

I had a few pasty butt issues too and just wetted their bottom with a wet paper towel with lukewarm water with tap water running in bathroom sink.Just takes a few minutes and poo softens and comes off. They don't mind if you are gentle. I wouldn't pull it off.

I am new to having baby chicks. I took the chick but him/her in a warm bath and just worked my fingers around the poop till I got it off. Then I gave him a warm bath and dried him and put him back in his pin. Worked wonders.
