Hello Everyone,
I've read many threads on "pasty butt" for advice, however, I need more information. Any help and advice would be great! We ordered 6 Golden Buffs from Meyer Hatchery, they are about a week old. We started noticing their poop was sticking to their bottoms. We've done some research. I've read that ACV is useless if you have tap water? We have tap water so I'm not sure if we need ACV? We've cleaned their bottoms..we were thinking of giving them a hard boiled egg or yogurt? Any other ideas? Thanks!

Rub some olive oil or vaseline on their bums. I don't know about tap water, but I've heard of ACV being used to prevent pasty butt. And it's good for your chickens.
