I have 12 red production's that I ordered and they are only a week old on tuesday , but I noticed today that about four of them have dried poop on their little bottoms . What do I do?

Wash it off gently with warm water and a mild soap if neccessary. May require soaking for a few minutes. Make sure they stay warm and if needed dry with a hair dryer set on low.

That is called pasty butt and is sometimes brought on by stressful conditions-shipping would be one! I used to take the chick and rinse its vent under a trickle of warm running water. Then after drying it, either blotting with a towel or using a hairdryer or both, put it back in the warm brooder. It may take a couple of times but it will eventually go away, you will probably pull some down off its butt, but that would be normal. You can try putting a teaspoon of organic apple cider vinegar in a quart of water, this will help their system to balance out. Good luck!!

You must clean it off, it will not be able to poop with their vent blocked and it may cause its death.

Hm, I had the same thing but it soon came off itself. Maybe it's better off to leave them next time because of the blood?
