    So started to noticed on a few birds hard crusty formations on bum. Used warm water to soften and remove-have read things on "pasty-butt". Common theme says diet-- have added sugar to water and medicated chick fred...any other advice? Thanks!

    Also, keep an eye on your temperature, too high can cause pasty butt as well. Good luck!
