I got 4 chicks from craigslist about 1 week old or so. One looked like it had pasty butt, I want to wash it off and it wasn't hard like pasty butt. . .

What is it and what can I do for it??? I now only have 3 chicks

I think one of the first questions people are going to ask is "What are you feeding them?" Looks like there is extra stuff in the poo?????

Virginia is for Chick Lovers!
Looks normal to me. Are they acting sick? Typically a chick that young won't have worms. Keep watching to see what their other poop looks like. That looks like cecal poop from a new baby!

Good luck and post if they are showing any signs of being sick.

Enjoy those chicks!

Oh, bikergirl, I'm so sorry to hear this! The poop looks normal. Was the craigslist source reputable? Could they have been infected with something? That's all I can think.
