    Noticed my 1year old gals (3) of them have pink butt when they bent over? I've seen many posts about it..but no solutions? Help!

    I had the same problem with my Ameracauna, we gave her some yogurt and probiotics, and they felt better, plus it is good to isolate them from the others because they might be pecking at each other, I hope this helps!

    Pictures may help, but I agree that it could be feather picking. What are you feeding, and are they getting outside to range?

    They have a large run and do get out in evening to range free..I haven't noticed them pecking each other. I gave them probioticis in some oatmeal this morning.. Going to spread some DE around..I have 9 more chicks to start merging in with others soon and don't want this to spread to them.
