My production red seems to always have clean feathers on her butt, but my barred rocks seem to accumulate little balls o' poop back there. Surprisingly, their eggs are not always poopy.

I have cleaned them off a couple times, and this weekend am thinking to clean them off but also trim back those poop-prone feathers. Any tips for a successful and shapely chicken butt-icure?

I have the same problem with my BR. I've just given her a soak in the bath tub, but this last time I went ahead and trimmed the feathers 'back there'. So far so good...

I feel validated my Barred Rock is so pretty from the front but her butt is kind of embarassing! all the other birds are fine hers is not very tidy that is for sure! I was going to wait until we had a warmer day to try to wash her butt off I am afraid it is just too cold yet to get her wet (and really it is not too bad just unseemly
