    My broody mille fleurs hatch a little mille fleurs and a silky on sunday, they are so cute!! I am worried about the little silky because he seems to have poop getting stuck to his butt. Yesterday I cleaned him up and today it's back, do you think the momy will take care of it or do I have to do it again?

    Thanks

    I would recommend you keep doing it. It is possible for the chick to die if it dries up.
