    I know this is an odd question, but is there a way to remove chicken poo form feathers? My girl, Aire, doesnt sleep on the roost with the other chickens, no matter how many times Ive put here on there. But today, there were 3 large clumps of poo mixed in with her feathers right between her wings, and under her wings. I tried to get it off, but nothing worked. She cont jump in or out of the coop with the poo. Please help. I dont like to see my girl uncomfortable.

    You can soak them in warm water and try to rub it off in water , or cut the feathers away.
