MY CHICK HAD PASTY BUTT. i SLOWLY TRIED TO PULL IT OFF AND I THINK I MADE A SMALL HOLE UNDER THE VENT. A LOT OF YELLOW THICK LIQUID CAME OUT OF THE HOLE. NO BLOOD CAME OUT. CAN SHE MAKE IT THROUGH? WHAT CAN I DO TO PREVENT THE PASTY BUTTS?
Quote:I don't know what to tell you about the yellow stuff but to remove pasty butt you need to wet a cloth with warm water, hold and work it until the poo releases from the fuzzy butt. Could the yellow you saw be some poo??????????? Just a thought. How old is the chick?
You can put Chicken Poop lip balm on it to prevent sticking again- it's not petroleum based and the lavendar seems to soothe.
You could also use Neosporin to treat any open wound, but not the 'pain relief' kind, as anything with 'caine' such as lidocaine or benzocaine is VERY bad for them. This ointment would also help to prevent sticking.
I never try to peel them off- I always run warm water over on it while crushing it with my finger- the chunk breaks up pretty fast this way without pulling any down.
for future reference, dont pull off the dried poop. You need to soften it up with some warm water. You can actually pull out this chicks intestines, I have read. Put some vasaline around the vent to help prevent sticking.
