Im new to the community and I was wondering if anyone can help me out with my the problem Im having with my 4-days old baby chicks pasty butt. I have read that whenever a baby chick has a pasty butt, always use warm water and gently removed the excess dry poop. The problem for me is, everytime I do the method, they would end up dying on me after couple of hours of cleaning the poop out. I would think the baby chicks are healthy due to always cleaning their environment around them with clean water and abundant of chick starter food; furthermore, they just look really healthy without any problem. I have lost 2 ayam cemani and 1 silkie baby chicks. I have 2 ayam cemani and 3 silkie left and hoping they dont get any dry poop in their butt to avoid further death. If anyone could help me out and point what Im doing wrong, I would greatly appreciate it. Cheers!
