so I got my first batch of chicks today. I'm pretty excited. I"ve read alot on these boards, I feel like an expert, but I'm not. not even close. So.. I brought my babies home from teh feed store, all quite lively. however, a few of them had "poopy butts". I've read about "pasting up" and wondering... so I picked one of the babies up and tried to moisten the dried poop and worked on it for a while and really kinda stressed that poor baby out. I made sure her vent was not plugged, the poop is still caked on... should I keep working on it til its clean? A few of the others have a little poop stuck to their hind ends, also.. so wondering if this is somewhat "normal" for their first day? They arrived at the feed store yesterday, I went and got them today. Do I "stress them out" and work to get tehm all clean or let it wait a day and see what happens? I don't want to "wait a day" and come back to dead chickens. They are out in an old stall... heat lamp, huge box, they are in chicken heaven honestly. Thanks all!
