She had pasty bum and I cleaned her bum and she in is my pocket to keep warm till she dries.
She seems to still have a bump there.... She didn't seem too happy abut me touching it - is this normal or no?
Yep, and long as it is cleaned up she will do fine. I have found that some chicks just seem to keep getting it once they have done so. But while the warm water is still on there bum, I just try to gently pull out the surrounding down and that helps a lot.
I agree, one of my serama babies got it everyday. It was the smallest of the bunch. It got to the point where a warm rag wouldn't do it so i ran his bum under the faucet to get it off. I think that should only last up to 2 weeks but mine got over it in a week
Does it look infected at all ? Maybe try a dab of neosporin or anti cream. Thats what I put on chick butts if they look red/swollen
It doesn't look bad at all. I check all their bums every day. And this one had a hard thing on it so her little bottom was under the faucet. She didn't put up a fuss at all until I tried to get the last little hard thing off. Then she started kicking and peeping.
