Good morning! I have one chick (naked neck partridge silkie) who continuously has pasty butt. I clean her off multiple times a day, they have probiotics in their water, I change the water 2 times a day, the temperature is steady, I have her on an in medicated organic starter feed, and she has access to chuck grit, though, she’s not getting any treats. I know she’s not getting picked on, it’s the reverse, actually, she pecks everyone else in the brooder. I don’t know what to do. Her bum is still sticking out as shown in attached picture, however, now she has a bloody bum each time I clean her off and it’s looking a bit crusty. I’m using a baby wash cloth soaked in warm water and I apply Vaseline after each time. I don’t know what to do. She is thriving, otherwise. She’s my only chick that has had pasty butt at all. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
