    I have new-er frizzle chicken that has loose poop and has a dirty vent. Not sure if hes sick or what. He does not act sick and none of the other chickens look sick either. Just curious what or if this is normal. I also have a deleware hen that had gotten attacked by a raccoon. She had an injured toe and wing got scraped pretty good. She has gotten way better, but, she has lost almost all her tailfeathers?????? any ideas why? Thanks for any info

    Well any chance this is pasty butt? where when they 'Go' it gets stuck all in their feathers around that erea?

    And about your other Question.. Your hen is probably moulting. This time of year they moult and somtimes my chickens loose ALL their tail feathers. [​IMG]
