Is it their bottoms- or around the navel area that they are picking? I can understand if they are itching around where the yolk gets absorbed into- as they can after have a small piece of dried up vein attached but it does seem a bit odd.

no its not their naval area... I just let them soak again for about 7 min.. they are preening but Heavy on the pooper area.. i put alittle vitamin E on it yesterday ??? they do quit long enough to sleep and they do play . i just dont see anything. Guess I need to just watch .. ???? maybe wash the area with baby shampoo to keep it clean.?
they are all preened now and he phooo'd fine.. but they still pick...
