    White crested black polish ~ 3 weeks old. I've had it 2 weeks. The other one has doubled in size as well as the two red sex links I bought. The little one has had pasty butt, I've cleaned it and added molasses to the water yesterday. How many days to I let them drink the molasses? Is there anything else I can do?

    Thanks everyone!

    Yea ~ I don't think this one is going to make it either. Sleeping more than the others but does have periods of much energy.

    Sorry to hear about yours too. [​IMG]

    I heard from somewhere on here that you shouldn't feed them molasses for a pasty butt
