    Bump under the vent

    One of my chicks has had very minor pasty butt. When I cleaned off the vent today, I noticed that there is a hard bump about a centimeter down from the vent. Is this normal? The other chicks don’t seem to have it, though it’s hard to tell because I have only soaked the one chick’s rear. She also...

    Chick is lethargic and has an empty crop

    Good morning. My little chick “Roo” is very lethargic today and will hardly pick at his food. His crop is empty/squishy compared to my other chicks, he has a poopy butt, and he is wobbly on his feet with low-hanging wings. Any ideas of what could be wrong and what I can do to help?

    My baby chick has pasty butt and is getting weaker?

    For 2 days now my baby chick butt has been sticking and fulling with poop. No matter how many times I've cleaned it off, it keeps coming back and the chick is getting weaker? What can I do? Is it already too late for the chick to survive? I've cleaned it just now and he's sitting and closing...

    Sticky Bum Methods?

    Good evening, everyone. I hope you're all well! Tonight I was thinking about my little girls as I usually do before sleep, and I had a thought. So, two of my girls look like they could benefit from some posterior maintenance. Their vents are clear to poop from, but they still have a little...

    Bad case of pasty butt!

    I recently became a baby chick mom and got one cockerel (Stanley) along with four pullets. They’re all about 1-3 weeks old and have had a pretty good transition into their new brood. But I’ve noticed that Stanley has a case of pasty butt, I’m not sure wether it was because of the stress he was...

    First chicks, questions already!

    So our local farm and feed store told me my chicks are a week old, at most. I have 2 Buff Orps, a Gold-laced Wyandotte, and a Black Australian. First question. They don’t seem to want 95 degrees. But really, I don’t know. I brought them home after five, got them settled, then was busy making...

    Swollen chick vent

    I have a polish chick that is about a month old. She got pasty butt a few weeks ago that I thought I treated. Her vent is now swollen and gets “clogged” fairly easily but it’s not pasty butt. She’s in the house so that I can keep it clean. I’ve been rinsing it with warm water and applying...

    Can someone diagnose this?

    One of my rouen/pekin cross ducklings has something on his vent and has had it since he was in the egg. I'm not sure if it's just a bad case of pasty butt or if it's something else
