    My chicken has a really poopy butt and a red rawness on her butt. It almost looks like she pooped part of her intestines out. any pointers.

    Could you be talking about a prolapse?

    For the most part, it's clean it up best you can, stuff it back in, and keep the hen in a quiet dark place to prevent further egg laying. Application of honey or prepH can reduce swelling and help it push back in/stay in.

    You can try reading through the experiences of others to see what you can do. I've not had a hen prolapse myself.
