I had to rescue my three chicks from thier psycopathic broody mama 2 days ago. I put together a make shift brooder in the spare bedroom out of a plastic tote. I'm having issues with poops gettin on their feet and drying into balls. What can I use to help, maybe different litter? Washing them is way too stressful and they're only 2-1/2 weeks old. p.s. pardon any typos. It is hard to type while cuddling chicks to your bosom in a dish towel.
