I have 2 week old Golden Comet chicks. I've never raised chickens before so every little drama seems like a really big deal to me---though, I might just be a paranoid new mom. My issue is that all four of my chickies have poop that seems to be super-glued to their feet. I'm keeping them in a huge rubber made tote lined with newspaper that I change three times a day. The whole thing is heated by heat lamp. Three questions: Should I try to wash all the goop off their feet? I tried wiping it off with my hand, but it's really stuck on there. How do you even wash a chicken?!? And should I change the lining of the box to another material? I have heard SO much conflict over pine shavings! Please and thank you for any help you can provide!
