I have three 1.5 year old backyard hens. They are all acting healthy and eating normally, but one of the hens has had dirty (poopy) feathers around her butt for the past few weeks.
Her poops are sometimes normal (round, brown, firm with a white top), and are sometimes brown and runny.
She's laying eggs normally, and all the hens act healthy overall - should I be concerned that the feathers around this one hen's rear end are poopy?
