    My little Pepper girl is starting to get yucky back there. Not pasty butt just stuck to her feathers. So how do you clean them up? Do you use sissors or clippers?

    Thanks.

    You can either clean them up with warm water or trim the feathers. I used scissors on my GLW that had dirty butt.

    I use a small pair of cuticle scissors and a paper towel dampened with warm water.
    Seemed the smaller scissors were easier to use with the chicks
