    Hi everyone , exited about my new chickens 10 White Rock Hens , 10 Dark Cornish, and 2 Rhode Island Red Roosters named Gus & Capt Call . Lonesome Dove fan lol . Gus has Pasty Butt and he is not growing with the rest . They are 1 week old today . Hope he pulls out of it . I have been keeping him clean as I can . Any thoughts on this ? Or is he just a runt? Oh well he is my Favorite Runt or not

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. Sorry about your runt with the Pasty Butt. Wash his bottom gently with lukewarm running water until it is clean, and then apply some triple antibiotic ointment to it. It should help him get over his Pasty Butt. Feel free to ask any other questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your runt.

    Jena Louisiana,
    You are Welcome and good luck with your chicks, i hope Gus has pulled out of his slump, i had a red sex link that went through those symtoms, i just kept its but clean and dipped its beak in the water to make it drink for a few days and it is doing great at 4 months.

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Yes, Apple Cider Vinegar at 3/4 teaspoon per one quart of water in plastic waterer only will help greatly with pasty butt. Probiotics work just as well. Empy one capsule into a quart waterer, discard the capsule and fill with water. Change these solutions daily and make new.

    You can soak the babies butt in warm water to help soften the crud. Blow dry him off well so he doesn't chill. And keep dipping his beak in the water so he gets enough of either of these solutions.

    Good luck and I hope he pulls thru. [​IMG]
