I have searched and searched on this and there are a lot of diffrent answers. Warm water, qtips, vasilone, veggie oil,yorgurt to eat or mixed in water, or molasses in water. Right now I have chicks that keep pasting up. I am cleaning butts with warm mild soapy water then blow drying on low heat 3 times a day. My family thinks I am crazy. I have put molasses in the water till it looks like week tea. I have even tried to put veggie oil over clean bottoms to keep the poop from sticking. That doesn't seem to work for me. It started with 5 chicks it is down to only having to clean 3 now. How long should I keep adding the molasses? Is it going to hurt the other chicks who do not have the pasty butt? Also how often should I be cleaning their little bottoms? Is 3 times a day to much? I know this is out there a lot but there are so many diffrent answers to all the posts I really appreciate all the help.
