Sorry for the weird subject header, I'm just confused as to what else to refer it to!! Anyhow, I've got a nearly 6 month old Golden Comet hen who just started laying about a week or so. I've been noticing she's got quite a bit of "poop" stuck on her butt feathers, from her "vent" right down to in between her legs. I first tried wipin her down with a warm damp cloth, with no success, and have trimmed her a couple times (she's very docile and put up no fight, that sweet heart). I can't seem to get it all off though, and am getting concerned it's something to be worried over after reading a few of the "pasty butt" posts on here!! Help??? ** Also, it's been rainin quite a bit here in south-eastern VA in the past couple weeks-- could her being exposed to excess rain & whatnot have something to do with this???
