    At what age are baby chicks usually past the danger point for pasting up? I've looked for the answer myself but can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Thanks!

    It is a problem that does not have an age limit. Even an adult chicken can get pasty butt. Usually you see it in the first few weeks with chicks.
