So I check these butts every day, 96 butts (we lost 4 chicks). Many of the chicks have poop on the back of their butt, but when I look at the butt the dried poop is not closing up the opening. Hindsight, I would have put vaseline on all of their butts as I unpacked them into the brooder, is that a bad idea? Do I have to clean all these butts, I can't get the poop unstuck, the chick ends up wet, and I know if I pull and make it bleed, the others will peck at it. What do I do? I have been giving them Bragg's ACV in the water, yogurt, and scrambled eggs, along with the feed.
