    You may want to bring him inside and clean him up. Run some warm water over his backside and get all the poop off. Then check his vent to make sure there's nothing going on there. He could have an icky booty because he's just got a fluffy butt. In that case, give his butt a trim. Or, he could have vent fleet. Its like a yeast infection for chickens. I think they get it from eating moldy feed. Good luck!
