I have one Buff Orpington that keeps a dirty bottom. Her poop is normal, but the feathers on her back side look bad.
She is about a year old and a good layer. She seems healthy other than the dirty bottom. I have washed and cleaned her up a couple of times, but after a few days she is back to being dirty again.
Any suggestions?

I have one hen like that--she often has a dirty bottom and she is also a great layer. Trim some of the feathers back carefully, so they don't catch the poo and keep her as clean as you can. If you haven't ever wormed your chickens, you may want to have a fecal float done, or just start them on Wazine and then a worming program.
