Have 3 girls that I just noticed have red butts. No feathers.looks like orangutan butts?? Not sure what this means
 
Most likely it's due to urates in feces scalding the skin which causes loss of feathers and fluff, redness, swelling and irritation.
Apply Nu-Stock to the affected area and it will heal. Shake the tube well and wear disposable gloves when applying it.
You can trim back fluff and feathers a little on other birds so droppings fall directly to the ground. Dont trim back too much.
Nu-Stock can be found in the equine section at a feed store.
 
This what it look like. I've seen it on 3 girls now.
