    This is probably a silly question, but My bantams I have hatched and got from hatcheries seemed to get backed up with poo, I have to pull dried poo from their butts everyday. does anyone know why this happens?

    Thanks!
     
  2. Very common. Just be careful when you remove the poo. I use a wet paper towel and patience. You can carefully cut the fuzzy butt part off that is accumulating the poo with a pair of cuticle scissors.

    They WILL out grow this in a week or so when they lose the fuzzy butts.
