<Sigh> It must be....I'm trying to figure out how I have only 15 chicks and still have 200 butts to wash! Poor babies are starting to run as far from me as they can when they see me coming. I swear this last time one of the Easter Eggers pointed at a tiny little Wynandotte saying "Pick her, pick her!!" Been looking around for information on here about "Pasty Butt" and must confess that now I'm more confused than enlightened. So many different ideas on causes and prevention, although the initial treatment seems to be consistent. So I'm forever washing butts, but tonight I added dabbing a bit of olive oil on their little hineys and mixing some Apple Cider Vinegar in their water for a bit. We'll see how that goes.
