    Hey everyone,
    I have two checks that have pasty butt I believe.I have clean them up as best I could. The problem now is when they are with the other chicks, the other chicks are constantly pecking at their rears. Should I separate these two from the other 35 or so? Or should I just leave them in with the others and keep checking on them? I mean I will be checking on them either way I guess. So far those two seem be the only ones with pasty butt. One out of those two seems a little weak. I did observe her eating and drinking after I cleared her back end.
    Thanks for all the help!

    If you have a place where you can keep them separate I would do so for a few days so that they have time to recuperate.

    Ya, decided to put them by themselves for a few days. I will keep a close eye on all of them.
