    Hi Forum:

    Wondering if there is a special soap to use on dirty chicken tushy feathers.

    My flock is very healthy, however, a few have dirty tushy feathers. I keep a very close on their food, fresh water, appropriate treats, and the environment.

    So, there does not appear to be a health problem. Wondering if anyone has a good solution to cleaning them. I've tried dish soap and warm water, but didn't do the job. It just stayed stuck and of course I'm not going to pull on their feathers.

    Any advice would help.
