    My newest silkie cockerel is keeping a poopy butt. I brushed it out once, and it got bad again, so I'm going to wash him this time. I know they sometimes get dirty bums, but I just wanted to ask and make sure that it's not a sign of anything? Not sure, but his seems to be the dirtiest one I've had so far.

    The only advice i can give you is keep cleaning it out so it won't clogg him so he can't poop. Good luck!!!

    My poopy butt silkies and any one else gets a nice haircut back there so the feathers don't get dirty.
