    My hen (a golden laced wyandotte) just started laying yesterday (yippee!!! My first egg!). I noticed this afternoon that she had white stuff on her butt. I wasn't able to really check it out this evening but wanted to find out if this is normal with egg laying?

    Sounds to me like she has poo stuck back there. No biggie...really. They sometimes poo in the nest, while waiting for that egg to come out. Congrats on the egg!!
