    Well! What a stupid question! Just kidding. [​IMG] If you don't know the answer it is not stupid. Sometimes they do get dirty. I wouldn't worry about it.

    If they get pretty dirty "back there" you need to wash chicken butt and give it a trim. No, I'm not kidding. I have fluffy butts and never in a million years thought I'd be spending time washing Chicken Butt. Sometimes their backsides are just really fluffy and they get dirty.
