    How long and often should I clean the chick vent?

    Unless something is wrong, like diarrhea or pasty butt, the vent shouldn't require much attention. :)

    If you are having to clean them all the time, diet or environment may need some changes/improvements.

    The last chicks I brought home the feed store said to the vent and so I did and just thought that then right on top of shaving that the poop would stay on them
