Hi all, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with a rooster who's tail feathers are growing down. I noticed last week he had gnats flying around his back side and he was laying down a lot. I lifted up his tail and found a large golf ball sized mass of built up poop attached to the feathers right under his anus. I removed it with mineral oil and washed the area with iodine just in case. I am noticing the gnats are back again and I am wondering if I should clip off his droopy tail feathers? He's only 3 months old and never really had much of a tail to begin with. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
