I think one of my RIR chicks has a pasty butt. I picked them up yesterday from the local feed store. They are soooooo tiny! Tiny... tiny...tiny....!!!! Anywho.... I was looking them over real good this afternoon when I noticed one had some dried on poopie stuck to it's bottom. It's quite hard and dried on. So I picked her up and did some investigating. Vent doesn't seem to be stuck shut... but seems like the poopie there may block the next one. I tried to get it off with a warm wash cloth... to no avail. Next I applied some canola oil with a Q-tip thinking it would soften it up atleast. What do you all think? Do I have a chick with a pasty butt?
