Is it pasty butt? Just wash it under the faucet of warm water, pat dry with a paper towel and put her pack in the brooder. It will take a few days to get over it.

No it's not pasty butt , she just has a hard time pooping and chirps real loud when she does.

Welcome Lawton! The title of this post made me laugh because someone posted a similar title over at "another forum" and it started a FIRESTORM of comments! :D This is why I love the "Chicken Forum" there just isn't the drama and attitudes here like their are at those "other" forums! Regarding your chick question, try adding an electrolyte to the water this can help some of those chicks that are not drinking properly get more motivation so to speak.

New Hampshire fowl are a good breed and not prone to any unusual health problems. Good luck with them and post pics when you get a chance!
