    This is my first flock so I'm not sure what's going on. I got my first 6 chicks that hatched in April. My NH Red has had a yucky butt starting when they began free ranging all over the yard. I've tried deworming using pumpkin seeds.......NOTHING. I've also done probiotics in their water for yeast........NOTHING. None of the others have this issue and they've all been together since I got them. Just curious what I should do next? She is saying randomly and I believe she thinks she'd a rooster mounting half of the girls. What
    should I do next? Thanks in advance. Here's a poop pic!

    Her poop looks very watery some of mine poop like that but goes back to normal.
    As long as your bird is acting normal and there are no worms in her poop you don't really have to worry.
    Watery poop sticks to their butts when they have a fluffy butt.
    I have a hen named Baby who has always had a poopy butt I can't get it off but she acts normal

    She was never acting sick or anything just got a poopy butt and some weird watery poop. I was reading on a site that poopy butt means unhealthy bird. I haven't noticed any loose poops lately but they won't free rage on the snow. I only noticed that one because they were trying to come in the house on the back deck! In they coop all the poop seems ok. Just confused why she's the only one with poop feather butt!

    Is it very warm where you are. High temps can cause watery poop.

    Brunswick Oh
    If she has a fluffy butt it's normal to have a little bit of poop on it. like the other person said soak her butt in warm water to get it off so she doesn't have problems with pooping or laying[​IMG] Hope this helped
