    I have two rocks and lately their butts have been so dirty. My white rock's bottom is completely brown, and the bard rock's bottom has poop hanging off of her feathers. Do I need to do something, or should I leave it?

    A worm infestation can also cause their backsides to be dirty...have you recently de-wormed your flock ? If not it may be prudent to treat them for any worm problems...
