Okay, I'll admit it...I'm a lurker! Been lurking for a few weeks, reading, reading, and more reading. I finally registered the other day, and I have my first question for y'all! I got some assorted chicks a few weeks ago, everybody is doing great (I did lose one, the same day I got them), but I've had a couple of incidents of pasty butt. I get them cleaned up and everything, and the fellow at the feed store said to put a few grains of oatmeal in with their chick crumbles, for added fiber. I'm not having too much trouble, but I have a little silkie who just can't shake this...how long can I expect it to last before s/he "grows out of it"?
