    Lastnight I noticed that one of my Barred Rocks had an accumilation of poop on her fluffy feathers just under her 'hole'...it's not blocking flow (small amount). But im wondering how I should solve this, should I wipe it down with warm water, trim it out with sciccors, or just leave it be...PLEASE HELP!!! Before it gets worse!!![​IMG]

    Quote:You basically answered your own question; warm water, trim with scissors. I've had to do the same thing with my BR's. Check for lice/mites around that area as well.
