    We lost one of our chicks today. I was hoping it would make it but has been small and has had pasty butt. I tried everything that people suggested on BYC but it just didn't work. I have 2 more with the pasty butt, hope we don't lose those.

    do you have acv in the waterer? I am curious, they dont have white or bloody poo do they?

    In the hatching 101 article in my signature, scroll to the bottom and see the homemade electrolytes recipes, I would do acv if you arent though.

    I just started with the acv yesterday. Their poop is for the most part brown with a little white sometimes. Is the white bad?

    Beautiful!! My favorite season to be outside, and to decorate for!![​IMG]
    I had that problem a couple of months ago. Poured poison down the tunnels, No more rat! I did keep searching the property for dead ones though, I was afraid of the chickens eating them. Also kept a watch on the tunnels, as I read that they often die in the entrances. So far so good.

    I was driving my little one home from preschool when the sky went black and the snow started coming down like CRAZY! But now it's sunny and not a flake to be seen!


    Bummer. I had 5 that were pretty pasty (out of 22 in my second batch) and I bathed them and fed them egg yolk with sugar and water mashed up into it. It took a couple of days of sponge bath. I'm sorry you lost one. :(
