    The meat is great and we had an 11lb roo, which is good for our family we usually have to cook 2 store bought. Anyway they are so nasty their butts are always dirty what can I do? All my other chickens are nice and clean.

    The most you can do is make certain they always have either clean bedding or clean grass/ground. They will probably still be a little dirty, but they shouldn't be too bad. Ours always look scruffy until around 6 or 7wks, but they stay fairly clean since they get moved to fresh pasture every day.
