Hi learned chicken peeps. I have 9 chicks (cream legbar, barnevelder, blue copper maran, Cochin, red & black sex link and a sapphire) all 6 days old from a local breeder. Last night I noticed the Cochin had what looked like pasty butt. I washed his bottom in warm water and the poop came off, I put some neosporin on and popped him back in the brooder. This morning I noticed the sapphire pecking at the Cochins butt. I washed him again and dried his butt with a hairdryer so pink skin wasn't as noticeable (or enticing). Problem is that if I put olive oil or neosporin on him it makes his feathers look wet and he becomes a target again. Should I set up another brooder and put him in on his own for a day or two? I feel terrible that I don't have a second brooder set up but can do it if you guys think it's necessary. Or - do I skip the neosporin and or olive oil? They have ACV in their water and I have given them some oats, boiled egg, grit and crushed mealworms in addition to their chick starter. Worried mum. The sweet Cochin seems to be at the bottom of the pecking order.
