Hello y'all I have a ? I have had a chic and a baby guinea die this week both about 1 week old and I noticed both of them had pastry butt. Could that have been the cause of death cause they were active and seemed fine earlier each day?

Yes pasty butt can kill chicks. Get the paste off with warm water soak and very gentle wiping, don't pick it. A dab of oil will help keep further poop from sticking

To prevent more pasty poops soak a feeding work of chick feed and add a few spoons full of ACTIVE CULTURE yogurt or buttermilk and feed this for a few days.
