    One of my bantam roosters has a constant build up of poo on his butt all the time.

    I have given him tetrycycline, electrolytes, beneficial bacteria, new foods, you name it I've tried it and nothing is helping!

    None of the other chickens in the pen have this problem, just him. I wnat to try worming him, what is the best way to worm small bantams?

    Thanks, I'm at a loss of what else to try....[​IMG]

    Wanted to add that some chickens just have dirty butts. I have a hen that is this way and has been like that since hatch. I trim her fluff around the vent occasionally to keep it from building up. It can burn the skin. Funny thing is I trimmed her up about a month ago, and she's staying clean now. [​IMG]

    Good luck
