I got 20 chicks 4 days ago. Two of them have pasty butt. I clean them up and the next day, their little bottoms are all poopy and crusty again. But today I got some help! Parker, our Lab/Great Dane big black dog is so excited by the babies. He wants to play with them, love them, lick them..........that big tongue would roll around those babies and draw them into his alligator mouth like a frog licking a fly. Parker, I am not fooled. Today after I gently washed off the baby bottom, Parker was spinning like a top in the bathroom. The bathroom is not that big, so he went spin-thump, spin-thump as he half crashed into the wall. He was so excited, he whined and barked at me. I offered him the baby and he stuck his nose on the washed bottom and did what dogs do-he licked and licked and licked. Poor baby chick peeped, cheeped and screamed MONSTER!! in chick language. Baby chick got a thorough cleaning, we'll see how it is tomorrow.
