    I had one that no matter how much i tried, it seemed to get worse. So i got the water nice and warm and took the chickybaby in my hand nice and snug, and stuck its butt right into the water to sorten it up. Then just use your hand or a q-tip to brush it off under the running water. It was actually quick and easy and i never had it happen again. Just be sure its not too warm. The chick actually took it well, never even thought of getting away.

    ps. wicked cute kids!!!!

    Try not to get the chick to wet. Water and new babies don't mix.

    Spring, your children (feathered and non-feather) are so cute! [​IMG]
    I think you have them figured out right. Yes, the Americana has the willow green legs, will lay the colored eggs.

    CUTE chicks, and kids!!!

    I had two chicks that were so pasted (REALLY bad) that I had to turn on the water and hold their backsides under it for about ten minutes each while I tried to clean them the whole time. I had a lot of issues with my chicks. I think it was shipping stress, probably they were worse than most chicks would be.

    Mine were kind of compacted inside, and like huge clumps of concrete on outside. It really took a long time to clean them, and I made sure the water was quite warm but not hot. They didn't seem to mind TOOOO much, but I think it was uncomfortable for them a few times, even though I tried to be gentle.

    I blow-dried them (warm and gently) afterward because their back halfs were soaked, and put them in a dry aquarium under a light for a day or two. Thankfully they both survived and didn't have any further problems.

    Your Lizzy is nowhere near that bad though. [​IMG] Good luck with her!

    I don't know what henny and penny are, but they aren't silkies... silkies need to have the black skin legs. Maybe they are cochins. Cinnamon might be a silkie, but her legs are too light in my opinion and she doesn't have a crest of fluff either. Lucy is 100% silkie, but I would say a white silkie, buffs are darker yellow. Good luck with your chicks! In time we can tell better what they are!
