Is this just poop or is there a umbilical or penis under pooper? Im new and am not shure of the amatomy. Do hen and roos have the same parts in the behind. Do they poop and pee from the same place the eggs come out. Do they even pee or just poop it all out? I have just read the pasty butt posts (HOW to clean) and reallised I could have done a better job with running water, but am now at work. Last night while cleaning 3 pasty butt problem chicks out of 35, I had yet to read how to properly clean them with warm running water etc. I am worried I did not expose the vent (pooper) enough for them to expell. I could see the butt hole but There was a hard spot under what looked like the butt hole that I could not remove even with a moisened towel with warm water even using my finger nail to kind of break it up. It was very hard and I did not want to pull off a body part that was supposed to be there,or rub the little thing raw a cause a spot for infection. Please set me straight with whats back there. Any hard pointy spots supposed to be there under the butt hole!!!!
