i figured out how to cure them, but should I be feeding them anything special?
acv in the water is supposed to help Pasty butt. Besides that you can give some yogurt. But all you have to really feed is their starter crumbles.
I'm not sure that it helps, but I did not have any more problems with pasty butt when I started giving them grit. I just took some sand from outside and put it in a 6 ounce yogurt cup attached to the brooder wall. I started doing this the third day I had them so they were 5 days old. With 28 chicks I cleaned 4 butts the first three days, then had to clean none afterwards. All they were eating was chick starter. No treats.
I agree with RidgeRunner, except I actually mix a little sand in with the feed. My first problem with pasty butts when I got into Seramas.
pasty butts just suckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
I've got a few of my own right now,I hate it poor things.
what does the sand do? Why sand?
Pasty butt!!!!! We had it for a few days when the birls we're itty bitties. I'm gld we are past that stage. I did a lot of bum cleaning those few day's.
Quote:Just regular sand like kids play sand or chick grit.
You can take regular grit and crunch it up to be smaller too.
I was able to get chick grit in a 5# bag at the feed store. It was very fine like sand.
