Hi..The last few days our adult chickens have been getting poop all bound up and matted up back there. I have had chickens for almost a year and never had this happen to adult birds. A few questions:
1. Is that normal for adult birds to get this?
2. What causes this? Prevention?
3. The first one was so bad I couldnt get it out. I had to cut away some feathers around the rear end to get it all out. Now this chicken has a bald spot there. This that bad or wrong to do??
4. Could some type of worms cause this? How would I know if that have worms?
