    I would certainly post this in the Emergencies / Disease / Illness section for best answers.

    Welcome to BYC!

    I've never cleaned a poopy butt (thank goodness lol!) but if I was in your situation, I'd get a wet paper towel and just start cleaning it the best you can. You can keep her inside of the house until she dries off.

    I'm a little confused. Do you mean posting somewhere else? Here's a little bit of information on how to get around the forum: https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/204/backyardchickens-forum-faq-chicken-dictionary#post_1198

    To ask a question about the forum go here: https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/3/byc-website-forum-feedback-announcements

    Good luck!

    hi welcome. Bring her inside and soak her bum in warm epsin salt bath(or warm water if thats all you have). This will help break up all that "stuff". Make sure she's good and dry before you put her back outside. Do this untill the "stuff" clears up

    Blow dryers do a good job of drying them off pretty quickly.
