    See this silkie butt? At first, I thought it was pasty butt, but after a cleaning attempt, it just appears to be skin. What is the diagnosis here?

    Do you mean the little piece of something that is hanging off her butt?

    No, that dime size black area. Neither of the other two chicks I have look like this, so I am assuming something is wrong, is it?

    I remember seeing aother thread recently where some people had mentioned a select few of thier flock had naked bums thier entire existence.....some people attributed it to acidic poops, and others said it was just always like that with no known cause and didnt have any affect on the chicken....try searching for that thread......I dont remember what it was called, but keywords might be bare bum, naked bum, etc.
