    I have 1 white hen with yellow comb that no matter how much i clean it it still gets covered in black poo. IT REALLY GROSS. Is there anything i can do for her that way she doesnt get so stressed out from me constantly chasing her to clean her bum???[​IMG]

    Use scissors to trim back the feathers/fluff on her rear area.

    I agree with Dawg. Trim the butt fluff.
