    She might have some sort of worms, or maybe a change in diet.

    If you want to save this chicken you have to bring her into the house & spray her bottom with warm watter as you pick it off of her. I am in Minnesota and outside cleaning can not be done here at this time of year. I feel sorry for your hen, she must be myserible. She has pasty butt, I am thinking. If you don't gently clean her up & pat her bottom dry, she will die a needless death. Good luck to her and to you. [​IMG]
