    I hope this is in the right place!

    Earlier this afternoon I brought home 6 chicks. They are all lively, but one has either pasty butt or an intact umbilical cord. I am familiar with pasty butt (just got a chronic pasty butt chick healed up) but this chick is so small and I really can't tell. Thanks for any advice, and once again I hope I put this in the right place!

    I'm not an expert, but looks to me like early beginning of pasty butt.

    That's what I thought. I just had a chick from another group that had recurring pasty butt, but finally got it fixed up. This chick is a bantam and it is so small I was having trouble telling!
