Our Welsummer is about 3 years old and recently she wasn't eating so I have had to give her some food that she would actually eat every day. She as been mainly pooping out water with a bit of food. When I was feeding her I noticed maggots or maggot like bugs crawling over her behind . Its too late now but tomorrow I will wash her off and check for wounds, what else should I do for the maggots and her not eating? Right know it is humid where I live, we are feeding our hens the Blue Seal layer feed and many of our chickens have a pretty yucky butts, it is probably one of the reasons she has the maggots. Is there something we can do to prevent the poopy butts?
