    Today I went to our local tractor supply in Enfield Ct and noticed a couple chicks with
    pasty butts so I asked a worker about it and she immediately took one of them and said
    she would go wash it off right then and there. Thought a good report was in order after hearing
    all the negative reports before

    My local TSC store is very helpful with the chicks and they always look good. They drive to Mt. Healthy and get the chicks. Now the last time I went to Orschelns all of their chicks had pasty butts with died chicks in the pen. So sad b/c I wanted some polish and they had some.

    I saw Pasty butt chicks at Tractor Supply, but the girl who cares for them was standing right there, and although she seamed overwhelmed by the task, she really did look after them, and I saw her clean some butts while I was there. A greater concern to me was the few weekolds who were flying from brooder to brooder. Who knows what you'll get?

    I had a similar situation here at the Portage, WI TSC. The lady obviously knew chicks and took care of her right away.

    Hey neighbor! I got 4 Mallards and 6 Red pullets from the Enfield, Ct store. They are pretty nice there and somewhat knowledgeable. I was upset about being told to give the ducks medicated feed and find out that was bad, but I should've known better before my spontaneous cute duckie purchase.
