Thanks ;) I just expect that whoever responds to questions is a knowledgeable experienced person, I'll think about that again.
There are TONS of knowledgeable experienced people on here, but occasionaly you will get trolls, or people who try to give advice even with no experience. Sometimes you can go back and look at people's past messages to see what other advice they've given and if they've actually given good advice.

Yes, poop on the butt can kill a chick.
But the chick in the first post of this thread had poop on its HEAD.
It cannot be "pasty butt" on the head!

Ever since my hens are doing the job of raising the chicks I don’t interfere with them doing their job. Hens prim and clean the babies. At least mine does it
Oh really! that would be cute to watch. I haven't seen my hen clean the chicks but I do see her preen herself and chicks copy and do it to themselves. And dustbathe all together.
