Hey guys! So I have six girls, five of which probably have poo stuck in their feathers. I got these girls from someone who was not as caring as I am about them, so I can only imagine they have had their feathers full of poo and debris for a very long time. I bathed one girl yesterday, and it was like cement in her feathers! I couldn't get all of it out, but I got most if it out and she is much more comfortable. Anyway, I've been looking into why it's happening, my birds don't appear to have diarrhea, and I don't think it's vent gleet because none of the poo on their bottoms is ever moist and their vents don't look super irritated, and also because the coop I was given is extremely badly designed, so the birds essentially roost and nest in their own poo. I'm still going to bathe and examine the remaining four, but I think if I put some dowels in the coop for them to roost on I will have much cleaner butts. Unless you guys have any other thoughts? And also, do you have any suggestions on how to cut the cement like substance made on their bottoms after so much poo build up? I just want these girls to be healthy and happy again.
