Hello my name is Dallas I live in north Iowa we just picked up our first chicks Monday from Murray McMurray Hatchery. We are very excited about the whole experience and very glad to have BYC as a resource. After the first night I noticed my chicks with pasty butt and lucky from reading all the info on this website I was able to identify what it was and what to do about it. I saw a post that hard boiled eggs helps with this problem. I already had a some hard boiled eggs in the refrigerator so I broke one up and put it in the brooder, the chicks loved it and it was gone in no time. Since giving them the egg I haven't noticed anymore pasty butt and am thankful for the help. Should I continue to give my chicks eggs once a day or so? Thanks for all the knowledge on here and glad to be part of the group. Gunner was very curious what all the chirping was The chicks arnt quite comfortable with us yet but get a brave once in awhile that has to come check out what's going on The brown one is our rooster he is a Red Rock then we have 5 golden wynodottes 5 golden champines and 5 barred rocks also McMurray throw in a free rare exotic and can't wait to find out what it is!
