I was out attempting to take pictures today and noticed my favorite little pullet Bella had something wrong with her butt. I didn't get a close look since I was about to leave and one of the dogs was beside the fence to go into the chicken area. From what I could see it looked like she had poop stuck on her and I noticed some blood. Maybe from her trying to peck it off. I think what happened was when it was warmer out for a few days she liked to sleep in the feed tray and probably pooped and got the feed crumbs stuck around her butt. I have never had to clean a chicken butt other than on chicks. She is the smallest of the two groups we hatched this year. She was 3 days late hatching so she required extra care and never fully grown up to the size she should be. The second hatch that is a month younger is bigger. I'm not sure what to do about handling her to clean her. She is the tamest we have but doesn't like to be held long. Maybe if I offer treats while cleaning her. I definitely know I seen some blood so how should I go about cleaning her? I know not to pull on the poop so I don't pull her intestines out and to let it soak. I might put some oil on her feathers around that area after cleaning her to help avoid more poop sticking.
