    Okay, so I gotta ask.
    Am I the only crazy chicken person who can't resist looking at the new chicks, despite having too many chickens already?
    And who then has to pick off pasty butt on those chicks?

    Today I was at the feed store during lunch and noticed a couple of chicks were pasted up. So I unlatch the hinge and start grabbing chicks to de-pasty them.
    ON MY LUNCH BREAK - and not even my kids.

    One of the guys working there finally is free and asks me what I'm doing. I explain and he says to use his 'arm extension' (piece of PVC) if there are any I can't grab. He knows me so he doesn't even bat an eye.

    Is this normal???

    Yes! I do the same thing. I've even had the feed store workers ask me to do things with them and help ID chicks. [​IMG]

    I pointed out the pasty butt to a clerk earlier in the spring and patiently waited till she came and got them out and cleaned them. I couldn't reach them all the way in the back of the brooder. At least I'm not the only one that does that stuff, lol.
