    So they are eating and sleeping and pooping....but when they poop, it looks normal and solid, but its sticking to their butt.....should I be worried.

    Just make sure to soak their butt with warm water then gently wipe the doo doo off. Our first run of chicks last year didn't have an issue but the one mottled java we got this year did. I just regularly check them for it.

    I've got 4-5 that have been getting rather pasty - been diligent about soaking and cleaning and drying. This seems to have made an otherwise docile-breed flock rather flighty. :/

    My babies were hatched sunday, so im letting them get used to things before I start handling them. I just got them on Wednesday. The poo is not pasty, its solid. i think its what they dropped in the box they were in when i drove them here, only it stuck to them.

    They are all so pretty! 2 of them have what looks like 3 rows of comb and 2 look like single comb...that last one Im not so sure. One of them is more yellow than the rest and has almost no comb at all. I hope i get some hens out of these! They will be breeders!

    But gosh they are too cute!!

    How well do Cornish do in winter??
