  1. I have one week old chick that I've had to clean a few times. I read on a blog to put a dab of olive or vegetable oil after I did and now she keeps reaching around and pecking at the area and is getting a bald spot! HELP :(
  2. Mountain Peeps

    Try putting coconut oil on instead. This is better for it and is better for her if she eats it. As for her not pecking it, maybe rap her in a towel for a bit so she forgets its on there.
