    If you check out the learning center you will find info on pastie but and chick issues.
    I put some sand from the big girl coop in with the babies and didn't have any issues with pastie but. (knock on wood)
    Try a dish of sand and keep checking those little bums!
    Pastie but can kill your babies.
    good luck
