I am not sure if this is an issue or not so what better place to find out?!?!?
I had a fly trap (sticky tape) hanging in the covered run and a piece of it broke free and found it's way onto a chicken (my little human chicken - Goldie). It was stuck to her feathers just under her wing ( so with her wings down, you can't see it). I remove the piece of the fly trap and any sticky substabnce I could but there is a fair amount left. Should I attempt to wash the area, not sure how well this would work with this stuff? Should I just cut those feathers out? Should I just leave it alone and it will work itslef out - no harm? Any advise you could give would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you......

If you want to remove it - I would, just imagine all that will stick there - you might try a little bit of peanutbutter or olive oil on the sticky residue. Once residue is removed, give her a quick bath.
