So is it just my two Barred Rocks that constantly have poo stuck to their rear ends or has anyone else had a problem with this. None of my other breeds have this problem. I decided to give Tilda a warm bath, I feared she may have been egg bound and I wanted to get rid of all of the poo stuck to her butt. When I did I saw an open sore with maggots! Im taking her to vet first thing in the morning. My guess is the poo stuck to the skin causing the sore, or that I may have pulled on it too hard a couple of days ago thinking it would come off easily. Either way I feel absolutely horrible. Both my barred rocks constantly have this poo on their rear ends. Molly is getting a bath tomorrow so i can make sure I dont have another problem creeping up on me. I'm about ready to pluck their little butts bare! Has anyone else had a problem with poo build up on barred rocks? How do you prevent this other than trimming the stuff thats in the way? I do it with my dog, I'll do it with my chickens too if I have to. I now see that it could become a very bad situation if left unchecked. Everyone is getting a poo check tomorrow!
