Hi all, I have been carefully watching my favorite hen (Rafeala) for the past few days because she has white feces stuck in her feathers. This morning I attempted to wipe it off with a warm moist paper towel and was surprised to find that there were actually chunks of feces stuck in there-- much like chicken dreadlocks. I couldn't get everything out because she began to get impatient. I also noticed that she was trying to clean up the spot, but couldn't reach it. Any thoughts as to why she is having this problem?? Is it possible to cut a few of the feathers from the problem area? Thank you! Here's a picture of Raf.
