Hi!
I've noticed that one of my little chickens I got on Monday has poop on her exit.
I read somewhere that this isn't good but I don't exactly remember where I read it or how to prevent it or what bad it can cause.
So, here I am!
I cut as much as the poop as I could away from the vent but there's a little bit left.
Anyone want to help me out?

P.S. She's a fluffy baby.

that is pasty butt, take and wash it off with warm water and take a hair dryer and dry there butt back, then use a little cooking oil on there butt so it don't do it any more.

What William said is pretty much the standard treatment for the gunky backside.
They must be kept clean there, because if they get blocked up, it's dangerous.
