I have read that pasty butt is a sign of possible disease or is it the cause of disease? Also considering chicks poop so often some remains on their butts, do you do anything about it? We received our chicks yesterday (4 PR's & 2 RIR's) and this morning their butts are dirty. I'm thinking this is normal but wanted to ask! If you do clean them up, how do you do it? We currently have paper towels down over pine shavings and have replaced the towels once already and plan on doing it twice a day and then will remove them altogether the third day. Thank you!
