    Hi all,

    My new babies arrived yesterday and today I've noticed one of my babies seems to have a wet butt...all the time.

    I've already pulled poo off the rears of two of them, I'm more than mildly paranoid about pasty-butt, and its fallen right off (I'm checking the whole crew 2-3x a day for it). One of my girls, one of the two biggest, seems to have a perpetually wet butt. She's the only one. I've not noticed diareah, but that doesn't mean that isn't what it is. I'm just afraid I'm missing something obvious. I seem to be able to see her vent(I'm like 99% sure, that self doubt is trying to convince me its not really her vent), its the area below her vent, and its almost syrup-y, her down stays moist.

    All the other chicks are fine, and she seems to be acting fine, but once again, I'm being paranoid!!

    So, any advice?

    Pictures might help us.

    Give her some save-a-chick probiotics in her water and keep her warm.
  3. Put a little ACV into the drinking water ........
