No matter how many times I clean the baby chicks bedding (3 times a day), on this hatch I the chicks have got mud balls on their feet. As soaking them off is not an option as they would lose body heat, I wonder how any of you do it? I know cleaning is they key, and I think that the initial bedding may be an issue (I used shredded paper). Since I swapped to wood shavings it has been much better. I've resorted to very gently picking them off but I'm afraid of damaging their tiny feet. I would love to know if there is a better way.
