    is it mostly meat birds that get pasting.?

    I have never had pasting with any of my egg girls, in July we got 16 meat birds and 6 or so got pasting.
    9 eggs girls, none of them got it.

    we got 20 more meat birds last wed, and 3 of them got pasting.
    plus we got 8 more egg girls and they are not getting pasting.

    As in pasting are you talking about pasty butt? I had 24 meat birds== none got it. But 6 OEG chicks did.

    I now have another 24 meat birds, and 7 OEGs, will keep my eyes open.

    (For some reason, my broody is on the same schedule as my meat birds.)

    I think they all get it.I think that because we get the meatbirds in bigger batches we notice it more. Will
