    Vegi oil should work...if not try Vaseline even. Yes, the feathers will grow back. Mine had pasty butt bad enough that I rinsed her poor feathers right off and they grew back very quickly really. The only prob is watch for pecking at the butt area. If the others peck get some hot pick/ or blu kote to put on her around the vent area. Not on the vent tho.
