Hello, I am trying to find out what is going o with my daughter's silkie rooster. I noticed he was acting sluggish and trying but not pooping. We brought him into the house and soaked his bum in warm water for at least 30 minutes and tried to gently remove the matter protruding from his butt. It did not remove and is hard as rock. But he was able to poop after that. The protrusion is still there and I think it is now bigger than the picture here. My daughter thinks it is somehow a part of him. I think maybe just petrified poop? She is usually right. Anyhow anyone know what this is and how to treat it? It will not soak off. I know it is not right for sure.
