I have 25 barred rock chicks in my brooder with 25 GL wyndotte, bought from different places ( one tsc, other hatchery). The GL Wyndotte are doing fabulous, growing healthy, the barred rock not so much. Day three brings pasty butt, I cannot stay on top of it, I am quickly making some fermented feed and adding water to their starter feed too. They were all using a nipple system, which I thought was successful, but I got worried and put the water dish back in because I was afraid they were not getting enough water and becoming dehydrated. My question is what happens if the pasty butt gets the best of them? What else can I do? I'm trying to gently wipe and clean their bottoms. I even put some bag balm back there to soften things up and to try and prevent re occurrence. Any advice would be appreciated!
