    Ok....I have read thru a BUNCH of the posts here on the "pasty bum" issue. I have 3 of my 13 with a little of this. I cooked oatmeal this AM after I cleaned them up and they won't touch it. (none of them) Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I had one that keep having the butt problem so what I did was cleaned it all off then put vaseline on it. Haven't had a problem since. [​IMG]

    I agree - after cleaning their bums, apply some vaseline.

    It sounds like you have baby chicks - you really shouldn't have to feed them anything but starter food for a while.
