When the chick hatched we didn't notice anything. I didn't even notice the next day, but, today, I thought maybe it had pasty butt as I saw something on the tail end feathers. When I got her out, I saw that her vent was clear, but there was just some mess on the feathers just a bit lower. As I swabbed it away I saw the little drying reddish, bubbled looking stuff. It is dry and firm. I just want to be sure that is what it is and if there is anything special I should do? This is on a Silkie chick. She is now 2-1/2 days old. Thanks!
