Hi

On Thurs am. picked up the chicks. Yesterday evening noticed a few chicks had the pasty butt.

After reading the posts/present and past I took away the quik chik water (I had left it in for 2 days) last night.

This morning I changed the paper towels, put in fresh feed, and fresh water. Tonight the pasty butt is gone. All butts are clean and fresh (and aren't they oh so tiny).

So far I have lost 2 chicks, both the first day, and since I had one extra I still have 49 RIR and all 6 little banties are fine too.

I have them in a Sears freezer box brooder, with red heat lamp (no picking so far).

So the moral to this story is: No quik chik water after the first day/night.

Thanks to all for the great advice, I am sooooooo thankful for this wonderful web site.

What is quik chik? I was talking out loud and my husband asked me what pasty butt was--I'm not sure that he wants to know that, but I have to find a picture for him.

Glad your chicks are doing better!
