Pasty Butt in Chicks: Causes,Treatment & Prevention

Pasty Butt also known as pasted vent and pasting up is a condition that occurs in baby chicks when droppings stick to the down surrounding their vent. Poop builds up to form a blockage of the digestive system that can be fatal to the chick unless removed. Pasty butt treatment, causes and prevention are covered below.
Pasty Butt also known as pasted vent and pasting up is a condition that occurs in baby chicks when droppings stick to the down surrounding their vent. Poop builds up to form a blockage that can be fatal to the chicken unless removed. Causes, treatment and prevention are discussed below.
Chicken chick with pasted vent
CHICK ANATOMY
All baby chicks have both vents and navels/belly buttons which should not be confused with one another. 
Chick anatomy belly button vs vent
The vent is the orifice from which chickens pass bodily waste and from which hens pass eggs. The belly button is located just beneath the vent. Just as in human babies, after birth/hatch there is a small amount of tissue that must dry up and fall off the belly button. This dried tissue should not be confused with droppings and should never be pulled off as doing so could disembowel the chick.
Pasted vent in feed store chick
  This chick was purchased at a feed store. 
It is very common for chicks sold commercially to have pasty butt.

CAUSES OF PASTY BUTT
·  stress and being cold, most commonly seen in chicks shipped through the mail
·  over-heating, most often due to heat lamps
·  less common causes include viral or bacterial infections and improper diet, all of which can result in diarrhea

All newly acquired chicks should be checked immediately upon arrival home. Those with pasted vents should be treated and monitored closely thereafter for recurrence.
A more advanced case of pasty butt in a feed store chick. 
TREATMENT
I have found that the fastest and safest way to treat pasty butt is to wash the chick’s butt under lukewarm running water. Work quickly in a warm room to prevent chilling. When the droppings soften, gently coax the poop off the down without pulling to avoid tearing the chick’s skin. 
Wash chick's butt in lukewarm running water.
After soaking to soften the droppings, gently coax them off the down without pulling.
Towel dry the chick, then use a hair dryer on low heat to dry the down completely. As you can see from the photo above, the vent is pink and obvious when wet, which would put the chick at risk of pecking from other chicks if returned to the brooder damp. 
After towel drying the down, dry with a hair dryer on low heat.
If the chick has recurrent pasting up, petroleum jelly or triple antibiotic ointment can be applied to the down as a preventative. Steer clear of oils as they can become rancid.
Clean chick butt.

The Brinsea EcoGlow Brooder keeps chicks warm and happy without the risk of overheating.

PREVENTION
· Consider switching from heat lamps to a radiant heat source such as an EcoGlow brooder, which will eliminate the possibility of overheating chicks.
· Add probiotics to the chicks’ water
· If several chicks develop pasty butt after a few days in the brooder, it may be too hot and the temperature should be adjusted.
· Don’t be in a hurry to offer treats to chicks. Always provide grit if offering any food other than starter feed. Grit can be sand, a clump of weeds with the root ball/dirt attached or crushed granite, which can be found in feed stores and online.
· If pasty butt is recurrent The Chicken Health Handbook suggests offering some scrambled eggs mixed into the starter feed and if that clears things up, switch brands of feed.

    Hey good article. I hate dealing with pasty but. One thing i do is mix up plain yogurt (not non fat or low fat) with some chick starter. Take an egg carton and divide/cut it into sections of 4. Spoon the mixed yogurt in and let them go to town. It provides the acidophilus which helps build the flora of bacteria needed to have a healthy digestive tract. The chicks are missing this naturally because they are not exposed to mature hens which have a proper leval of bacteria in their system. Works for me every time but you have to give it time to build up so be patient. Just Saying.......

    How long is this an issue for the chicks? I mean...is there an age when they won't need to be checked? When they are no longer downy? We recently got our first ever chicks, and gosh are they ever adorable. They haven't had any problems, and I have checked them regularly, I am just wondering if there is an age when this no longer happens? Probably a total newb question, but I would rather sound foolish than put my chicks in danger :) Thanks!

    One should always pay attention to the state of a chicken's vent area. While the condition isn't called pasty butt in older birds, they certainly can get diarrhea that builds up on the vent feathers and cause health problems.

    We could really use the Chicken Fountain. Our chicks love the Chicken Fountain brooder caps I got them. I wanted to let you know that a little over two weeks ago I used your pasty butt information on two of our chicks. A few days later while at TSC I noticed one of the chicks there with the problem and told the clerk at the checkout and she sent a clerk on the floor to take care of the chick. Because of your information on what to do I recognized what was going on in both our two chicks and the one at TSC. I wouldn't have even known it could be a problem otherwise and would have thought they just had something on them. Thank you!
