Ok please forgive me I have been up since 6 am, and then went to work, and it is now midnight and i am dead tired. So here it goes, Big Mama (my beauty) has something going on with her rear end. I went out right before i had to leave for work to lock the girls up and noticed two of the white one with dried blood all over their heads so i picked them up and checked them out and didnt see anything, and then i saw another white one going after the bottom of Big Mama so i picked her up to check it out and wowza i have no idea what it is or what is going on. I will attach pics and hopefully it will work. I need to know how to treat it, and what to do. I did notice that she was sitting down in the middle of the pen but earlier she did get up and act like nothing was wrong, she doesnt noticably look like she is in distress. She eats regular chicken feed, water, they get some cracked corn, there pen is dirt bottom and i just recetnly in the last few months put wood c hips in the pen area cause we were having trouble with the mud. we got our girls in March so they arent even a year old, they have been laying eggs at about 14 weeks of age. This is a farther away shot of her bum area, it looks real bulgy because i was holding her and her tail was up. This is a closer shot of it, ick, the only thing i have done so far was to take a paper towel with warm water on it and while doing that she didnt act like it hurt.
