    One of my chickens has hard dried poop on her behind and it is frozen on there. I tried pulling it off but it didn't work. Do I need to worry about it? [​IMG]

    I wouldn't worry too much about it unless it's still there a couple days from now. Chickens will generally preen themselves and pick off the "tail clumps" as they go.
