So, it wasn't the smartest thing I ever did.

Last night I decided that my chicks would like the remaining juice from my canned peaches. So, I poured it on some of their food.

This morning I have some sticky chicks that are not very happy with me. They are a week old.

I am thinking I may need to give them a bath and possibly put them in the bator or in a small box with a strong heat lamp.

Any advice?

I washed some serious pasty butts at one week old . . . wih got them pretty well soaked by the time I was through. Then I towel dried and then blow dried on low. They hated it the first time, no complaints the second time around. No sniffles or other problems all big and healthy now. I used a drop of dawn in warm water for the wash.

Unless the peaches were packed in their own juice and nothing else, I wouldn't do that again while they are still young. The syrup has tons of sugar in it.
We all live and learn when our chicks are young.
