I thought it may have been pooped on by another chick while sleeping under hen then feather got stuck?.. I could try wiping with paper towel but I don't want chick getting cold from being wet... It's active and normal acting.Take a wet paper towel and try to wipe it off it may some what take an hour sometimes but usally less than 30 minutes its called pasty but it comes from stress or if ur chicks to cold try putting under a red heatlamp if it seems weak give it green tea or garlic applsider vinger honey water. DO NOT SEPPERATE FROM MAMA
This is on the chick's head, right?Mother hen just hatched 7 chicks. 1 had a feather of hen stuck with chick poo I think so I just tried to cut off the feather. Do I need to try cut more off or bath the chick? Or do I leave chick as it is? Only a day old.
See pic after I trimmed the white feather off.
