Can adult hens have a pasted vent? My barred rock had poop stuck to her rear feathers yesterday. This morning the feathers around her vent were missing and most of the poop was gone. She still has some old poop stuck in the vent area, but she laying and pooping just fine. Her rear seems to be bothering her, but she may just getting used to her new bare bottom. None of the skin in the area looks red or irritated. I'm just curious if any of you have had this experience or if I should be concerned. Thanks!
