I've noticed that a few of my girls have poo that sticks to their cute little fluffy butts, but what I am wondering is....is this actually pasty butt? I have tried to wipe off the ones that have some there, but it is HARD. It's like cement! From what I can tell, none have their vent pasted up, all are pooping fine...but some are getting a build up underneath their vent. So I read through Storey's Guide To Raising Chickens and it said that if I fed them chick starter & uncooked oatmeal, rather than just chick starter...it wouldn't likely happen in the first place. So I chopped some oatmeal up in the food processer and added it to the chick starter; but through the first and most of the second day, I fed them just chick starter and plain water (also some ate gro-gel, some didn't.) So I guess my questions are, is this even pasty butt to begin with? and what's the trick to removing poo cement?
