    walked out side to feed my chickens and give them some water and I realized that my RIR had this yellow crust stuff in its head feathers and kind of around her eyes, her neck and head is wet and has that yellow crust on her head. They have been drinking and eating fine do you think it's just because it's getting hot or is it something else please help!

    Look at her eyes for gunk that can be white or clear, and dry crusty and yellow. Also listen to her breathing, and look for dirty nostrils or clear nasal drainage. Otherwise may be something she was eating.
