Certainly. Anything to be of help. Actually my dates are a bit out. I made a post under 'very thirsty hen' in May and got a sympathetic reply.
I did wonder about some kind of poisoning from eating spring plants or slug pellets used the previous spring. (I have not used slug pellets since the spring before getting these hens.) The other hen is still well although she ate the same diet.
As you say, she had a hard life, but she seemed to enjoy her short time in my garden. I am just suprised that no-one else has seen poop like hers.
Thanks for your reply. Your work on this site is much appreciated.
Do I have to email the photo to you or can you get it from my post?

Hmmmm this topic takes me back to my days as a student midwife... we had to be able to describe what sort of poo to expect from birth and for the first couple of weeks of a baby's life?????

What about a bum gallery Aunty or a pooo-y bottom gallery.

I only have two ladies but soon will have six and finding the offending lady may rely on whether her bum is clean or not.

aunty, thats one of the strangest, but most usefull galleries ive seen! I always think when it comes to identifying whats normal or not photos are the best method. I was a bit worried today about my girls who produced several odd poos after a mornnings free ranging, but i can see now that they are the caecal type, probably as a result of whatever odd stuff theyve been eating in the garden :D

it could do with more examples of abnormal types, such as as a result of worms etc, but hopefully from open source libraries, not from any members own birds!

It is ok she has been having a cold shower all day so no need to wash her. What with this rain and all. My 1000 ltr IBC is full in one day !!!!!!!!!!! Lucky I have two and plumbed the second one in as an over flow.  

Thanks for the advice Aunty.
