    Being absolutly new to chickens please forgive me if I sound ignorant, I am.

    All of my puulets have "fluffy butts" except two. everyone looks to be in good health, eating and drinking well. They free range most of the day and I give Layena and a bit of scratch in the evenings.
    One of the wet butt pullets has been at the bottom of the pecking order since we got them as a single flock.

    Any ideas?

    Backyard Poultry magazine just had an article about "gleet' which is a fungal infection of the bird's backside. might check that out.
