    So the 6 of my chicks that have survived have a little brown, crusty stuff on their bottoms...

    Is it normal for some to have this or will they always have a little bit of stuff on their bottoms?

    Thanks in advance.

    Found one of mine with pasty butt, cleaned it off with warm water on a paper towel.
    Read somewhere about applying olive oil around the vent ... is this helpful ?
