    O.K. my blue cochin Coco, who is majorly fluffy, had a major poopy butt [​IMG] that I just noticed when I went out to lock up for the night. I snatched her up and brought her in and washed her butt. You know how they say hind sight is 20/20? while blow drying her butt, I remembered that it takes a long time to dry a chicken butt [​IMG] and it's about 10 degrees out there right now. should I keep her in the house for the night until she's nice and thoroughly dry in the morning?

    I probably wouldn't keep her in for the night, but maybe a couple of hours. Just make sure she's good and dry. You can always use a blow dryer to help dry her faster.
