    Sorry the photo is blurry, but is this something to be concerned about, or is this normal? She seemed confused on getting out of the coop this morning.

    Looks like a little diarrhea on her feathers. Just clean it off with a butt bath and consider trimming any excess feathers if it continues. It's pretty normal with some chickens. Make sure she is eating, drinking well, and alert and active.
