Thanks I will try the sugar water. I tried soaking some of the food in water so maybe some nutrients would get in her through the water. The buff with the caked butt I saw pooping today so thats a good sign right? I read you can dab vasoline to help it from getting crusted?

Keep an eye on the poopy butt one, IME it re occurs with the ones that are prone to it and like sarah said if that one has a ton of butt fluff, I'd trim VERY carefully or pull out the fluff a bit around the vent. I had to do that with my brahma when she was a baby. She had so much butt fluff that it would drop onto her fluff and then clog her up.
