In the Brooder
- Apr 18, 2014
I have 14 pullets that I got as day old chicks this spring, all seem to be generally healthy and have been laying. 8 leghorns, 3 silkies, a RIR, black sex link and a plymouth rock. All of them have 'clean butts' except the plymouth rock, which always seems to have a really dirty butt, it has been that way for a few weeks. All of the leghorns are nice and white and clean and I was expecting them all to be this way. Not sure if it is related but the plymouth rock is the only one that does not lay in the nesting boxes, she always seems to lay in the corner of the coop in the pine shavings. Should I be concerned or is there something I can do to get her to be cleaner?
