    Do they roost? I have 5 ladies that won't roost and as a result their butts are always messy looking. It happens. I bathe mine or trim their feathers when it irritates me too much. Your girls are probably fine if they are showing no other signs of anything awry. If it annoys you then do the same as me, or you could just ignore it, which is a lot less work.

    Good luck.

    Yes they roost , i give boss daily and they have more feathers than you can imagine. So we will clean them up and trim feathers that will probably cure the problem T/Y
