    Hello everyone :D

    I am new here but not entirely new to raising chickens but I just wanted to share and ask if any of you have had this happen. I have been raising chicks for some time and have dealt with the "Pasty Butt" thing with every batch.. not every chick got it but at least a few out of every hatch... Well I finally had to change my feed since the feed store I get mine from was out of the "cheaper" stuff I would get... (it was a decent feed but saved me a few bucks per bag) So I ended up buying a bag of Purina Start and Grow, Medicated chick crumbles...

    I've had several hatches since starting to use this feed and not ONE chick has gotten pasty butt! I have been so happy because cleaning little chickie butts was never that much fun, for me or the chick.. LOL

    Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone else has noticed that using a possibly "Better" feed solved this issue?

    Thanks for any input and here are a couple of pictures of my little chickies and their mamas :D
