    Hi all, I have a new batch of chicks from McMurray. They shipped Monday; I received them wed morning. About 1/3 of them of developed pasty butt. I have cleaned the butts and put probiotics in the water. I have read that giving them scrambled eggs will help clear up pasty butt also. Do they need chick grit if I give them scrambled eggs? Thanks.

    I give them grit if I give them anything other than crumble. Even if they only get crumble, I still give it once they are on shavings. They are like toddlers and things will go in their mouths. Better to be safe. Just set some in a dish for them.
