OMG! I went to clip some poopy butt feathers and was doing a general all around check and when I checked the butt of one of my BO's she had a poopy looking thing hanging from her vent so I went to clear it away, I thought it was just a runny poop and it was sort of ropey like (don't know how else to describe it) so I gently pulled and I pulled about 4" out . It looked like it was made of hair or feathers or maybe hay? Hope I didn't do the wrong thing but I cut it, not all the way but there is still something there. She didn't flinch or squawk or anything when I cut it so I don't think it is part of an internal organ. Has anyone seen this before? It really sort of freaked me out. Boy, I had no idea the education I would be getting when I decided to get chickens!
