Hi everyone. I have two week-old chicks. They seemed to be pooping just fine. In fact, they are eating, drinking and pooping up a storm! When we pick them up, their butts look fine. However, when I spread the down feathers I noticed that one has a hard black glob near her vent. I have tried soaking the dropping with a warm washcloth. After several attempts, and MUCH PROTEST on her behalf, the glob is still there. I CAN NOT GET IT OFF!!!! Should I keep at it? I am so afraid of hurting her. I have no idea if this is pasty butt, or something else. I will try to get a pic and post asap. HELP!!!
