Hello, The long awaited day has arrived! We have 9 baby chicks, 4 ducks and 2 geese. They all seem happy in their brooder, are eating and drinking and running around. I was checking their butts for pasting-up, and I can clearly see a little pink that looks like it must be the butt. On one or two of the chicks, there is the little pink butt (up high under the tail), and there is a little black crusty spot down lower. I tried going after it with a wet tissue and it just won't come off easily, and the chick was complaining loudly, so I stopped harassing her. Is this pasting-up, or something I should leave alone? Thanks for any advice! I want to do this right the first time around. We got 3 Buff Orpington pullets, 6 random bantams, 4 runner ducks and 2 African geese. The rest of our order will be coming next week (we ordered as part of a group order at our local co-op). We'll be getting I think 24 more chicks, 3 each of 8 different kinds.
