    Looks like pasty butt. You will need clean any chicks up that have this going on around their vents. Warm water and you may need to soak if it's really glued on. What are you feeding them? Make sure the brooder is not too hot as this can exasperate the problem. Did the chicks that passed have this too? Some apple cider vinegar in the water can help.

    Here is a thread on pasty butt ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/827/help-pasty-butt
