Dear Forum members,

 

Please can you have a look at these photos and tell me what is wrong with this bottom ? Some of the marks look a bit like ingrown feathers, you may be able to see on the close up picture.

 

This bird is a light Sussex, approx 4 years old, in good health and still laying. We have a white and buff Orpington with similarly affected nether regions. All the birds are happy and healthy and laying well, despite the cold and snow.

 

Is it an infection, or mites, I've had a good look and can't see any crawlers or droppings, or just old fashioned pecking.

 

Thanks for any help and advice you can give.

 

Maggie

Looks like a good lot of sudocrem is needed on those sore bottoms. :wink:

I would say feather pecking but sudocrem would help if it is a skin irritation or pecking either way.
