    I picked up my baby chicks today. The one had a little poop on his bottom so when I got home, I went to wipe it off. While wiping I pulled a little and the fuzz on her bottom came off. Not too much came off. Should I be worried?

    Naw, it'll grow back. She might have a little sore bum for a while, but as long as the others don't peck at it , it's fine [​IMG]

    No, momma hen will pick the poo off the chicks bottom also - she usually pulls the fluff with the poo too.
