I wouldn't wash them. Wipe it off with a paper towel or wait until it dries and then gently pick it off with your fingernail. You don't want your babies to get chilled.

I had to get poop off a few last night. I used as little warm water as possible, and just worked it out. They will get under the light to warm up. Just use as little water as possible.

I wouldn't myself... I'd be afraid of hurting the chick. Pulling it with your nails and maybe crushing or crumbling the poop with your nails will help to break it down
