As I was free ranging my flock I noticed one of my Buff Orps had something brown on her saddle feathers...It smelled exactly like poop. But how could poop get up there? Did one of my roosters poop on her in the middle of mating? I’m confused and just hope this isn’t a medical issue. Also I hope this is the right forum, I wasn’t sure what to call it.

My first thought is she might be roosting somewhere another chicken is pooping on her from above. I have seen that before with my chickens.
