    So my 5 day old chicks seem to be doing fine.. thank goodness! however I was checking and a few of their butts were kinda moist. (I raised the heat lamp up some) its not pastey butt theres no blockage from the vent its right underneath some though. wish I had a picture but I have a feeling this is just sweat and or you know a sign that everything is moving along and im just being paranoid maybe?... Thanks in advance!

    It's normal for their vents to be moist. Chickens don't sweat.
