    Hello, I have been reading tons of posts about this pastey butt syndrome thing, and I was just wondering if this just an issue for brooder raised chicks? What would a mother hen do? Chick babywipes??*L* Sorry but I just like to know why a lot.. Thanks in advance:confused:

    Most of the time naturally raised babies will not have that. Pasty rear ends is caused by stress. If it was to happen, I would think that the baby would either grow out of it or if it became weak then the momma would kill it. I don't know because I have had no experience in that area. Just my 2 cents(by the way it aint worth much)
