When we had the chickies and they got pasty, we would dip their hind ends in warm water and clean their feathers until they were clean. Yes, its icky but it had to be done. Then just make sure they are warm enough as they dry off. We had to do the same to a young hen who was pasted last week. She's good now. WHen they are babies, its common for them to get pasted, and it will appear under the hole.
