Carl, you will be amazed how much you end up looking at chicken pooh just to see if it is normal  :lol: :lol:
Staffies are softer than you think.

I had a topic on the forum yesterday. I suspect that this poo is form the same chicken. It looks like a normal poo but with a small blood red blob in it is this normal?
It's like America...But south!

have you had a look at the photo's on page one? See if it matches any of them - you will be amazed at how many different poohs are classed as normal. If it is nothing like them then take a photo and put it on here so that somebody may be able to help - without seeing it we cannot help you.

Sometimes when they shed a bit of intestine it looks blood red - this, believe it or not, is completely normal!

As joyful states, it is amazing at what is classed as "normal"!

Auntie:
I've looked at the pictures of normal poo and have one that's a little different.  I've been finding it for the last 3 days in the same spot, on top of a garbage can.   It's thick, but somewhat rust colored.  I am not sure who's doing it yet.  I haven't noticed a smell that's bad.  I've been feeding my chickens Layena Pellets, Purina Scratch, and Oyster Shell. I also do water with ACV that's organic.  I have a mixed flock of chickens and ages.  Thanks. :unsure:
