    One of my silkie hicks had a pasty butt and I cleaned it and cut some feathers off from back there.
    I also put vaseline on it's butt to help it poo.

    When I look at it's vent now it seems really dark and kind of swollen and it didn't look this way before.

    It's pooping just fine, am I just able to see it's little butt better because I put vaseline down there?[​IMG]

    Should I be worried?
