    I have 11 day old barred rock chick n one RIR. Over 12 hrs they lost tummy n breat down. They were on straw that did get a bit yucky so I've moved them back to a huge plastic pool in guest room. They have light n lots of places to go to regulate heat. They r perky n happy but my question is can I rub a warm wash cloth underneath to loosen the crusty lil down they have left and will it grow back? They have bald breasts n are a lil indecent. Lol

    I should add that I've changed to clean shavings, they have tons of room n lots of attn. I've been up since 2 am checking, all seems well but they do still have a lil crusty breast n tummy. Someone help so I can sleep. Ha ha ha. Ty!:)
