Poopy butt on 7 month old BO

Hi there-

Yesterday I noticed one of my hens had a streak of stool down her backside. Today it looked worse and I took a closer look. I lifted her tail feathers and noticed what appears to be a collection of stool all over her butt feathers. Some of the stool that was stuck to it was formed. She is behaving fine, eating fine...very active. Just has a messy butt. It just seems unusual and I am not sure what is going on. Any ideas?
Messy bottoms can be a sign of worms. Have you ever wormed your birds? How old are they? Orps also tend to be a bit more fluffy back there, so it can accumulate faster on them.
