Few months ago one of my chickens started being in a weird position and below its cloaca it started to swell up a lot ( look at the pictures). Also her poop gets stuck in her feathers.
Everything else is fine, she is moving around with the other chickens and eating and drinking.

Swelling below the vent can indicated a reproductive infection or it could just be fat. Unless this hen is exhibiting signs of feeling ill, I wouldn't worry too much. The poop could tell us something, however, and it might be a good idea to post a picture here so we can take a look at it.
