Hi šŸ‘‹,

My young hen Petey had just started laying eggs about 10 days ago and now stopped and no eggs for 2 days. She acts normal, eats and is active but the fluff underneath her vent is dirty, which has never happened before.
Is this normal? Could she be sick?

How dirty and with what....poop, egg matter, or just dirt?
Best to take a good close look back there, maybe trim off the dirty feathers.
