    Sorry I couldn't get on line to reply yesterday. Yes, they are on medicated chick starter. I did lose 1 chick. Lethargic laying on it's side, huddled next to the heat lamp. It felt like featherweight even though it had been eating/drinking. Another one is weak but seems active and eats/drinks. It seems like the runt. I have 4 out of 6 left. The are mille Fleur cochin banttys, 12 days old. I did find advice to put organic cider vinegar in their water, which I did. No more pasty butt. Thanks for your help. Any more advise?
