I took this photo just over an hour ago. I had just given her a 10 min butt soaking in tepid water. The feathers look very sparse because she's wet but even when dry she doesn't have a fluffy butt, she has bald spots. This photo was also taken just before laying. So not sure if it's swollen because there's an egg in there although she always seems swollen there. Not sure if thats the way their butts should look. I'm mostly concerned with the redness. Is that normal? Should I be concerned and if I need to do something what should I do? Thank you!
P.S. I hid her face for privacy issues
