I have a RIR hen that keeps getting a poop clump on her butt. I cleaned off a big glob of poop on her butt. I had to cut some of her feathers off it was stuck so bad. It is back a week later. Someone locally suggested it may be a yeast infection and to try monistat, but I thought I would ask here first. The photo is the first time, but it is the same.

Thanks is there a post on how to hold her?

Here are some short videos of Terri Golson from the HenCam, she has really simply techniques that may help you. I think you would have white discharge is it is vent gleet. Have you wormed her? Sometimes it could be parasites or even nutrition. Some hens just get messy bottoms too. But I would look clean it up and look closely at the skin and vent, just to make sure.

Thanks. Hopefully I can get home in time today. It makes me wonder if she is the pile on the roost and just sits in it. We shall see.

They have dirt and they roost over a poop board, but one spot where the ladder comes up under the one board someone roost there and poops a pile. I clean the pdz/sand once a week
