I'm not sure if this is a medical issue or not. I have a 10 month old RI that has "clumps" of poop around her fluff. I've checked to see if she might have pasty butt, but the clumping is only collecting around her feathers/fluff.
I've taken a wet washcloth to try to gently pull it off, but it looks like it hurts her. So I'm just cutting the feathers off down there, along with all the clumping. As far as I can tell, she's laying as usual, and isn't smaller than my other RI.
Is there something wrong with her? Are there any other things I should be doing to keep her clean?
Thanks for any ideas you all have.
