    Calm down, just b/c no one answered in 10 minutes doesn't mean we hate you. Sounds like she might be eggbound... Search it...

    clean it with some warm water a mild soap
    I'm pretty new to the chicken thing, but my guess is that it's the same treatment for that as it is for pasty butts and chicks [​IMG]
    Any other information you could give would probably help the other more experienced chicken owners help ya out.

    Is it a chick or adult hen.

    Either way, clean her off with warm water to start.

    She might have a prolaspe. If so, that would need to be placed back in very gently and she would need to be kept in the dark a bit to keep her egg production down while she heals. Do you have a picture?
