    Help Help Help, one of my white leghorns has what looks like cottage cheese comming out of her butt and it is sticking on her butt and some is falling off. I checked all the other hens and none of ther others do. She is also not moving as fast as the others. Thanks

    Can you post pictures of it? It could be an infection, or it could be her poop??
