I got 26 chicks from MM on the 22nd and had grow gel, purina sunfresh starter/grower medicated crumbles, chick grit, sugar in water for first day and a half, lots of fresh water. They were doing great. Then today I have had to clean pasty butt off of 7 of them. I'm worried. They still seem fine except for that. They are in my garage and it was 98 today and the air seemed stagnant. I turned off their heat lamp and late this afternoon I opened the window to get some fresh air but it is still really warm in there. Could the heat have caused the pasting, or did I take them off the sugar water too soon?
