    Growth below vent - any ideas? *Graphic pics included*

    Would be real interested in info on this. We have a RRI 7 1/2 months old and she just developed this problem a couple days ago. Same as yours in the pic. Eats/drinks well, runs with the flock, just has a real droopy bum. Soft when felt. Will keep an eye on this topic.
