There's a small piece of poopy feathering by my buff orpington's butt. I tried to pull it off with my nails but she squawks and acts generally pained by it so I don't want to keep trying. I thought i'd let it just come off naturally but it's been there since I got her about ten days ago, so now I'm wondering if I should take it to phase two and dunk her butt in some water to loosen it up. Also, the poop is not blocking her orifice in any way, which is why I wasn't too worried about it in the beginning. any input?
