    Hey Hooligan, I am wondering about Mango's tail. [​IMG]

    It looks dirty under the feathers on the top.. not near the vent. I don't think it's mites, and I don't want to treat him as such if it isn't. The other chicks are not like this.

    Have you ever had your Cornish X's have hygiene issues? I am thinking that Mango can't reach his tail feathers to preen and clean them properly. Can/should I bathe him?

    My Bobo does the same thing. I just wash his booty. He's too fat to reach it.
