They have had a lack of sunshine. They free range when I'm home but they have been cooped up for a fairly good amount of time because it's been cold and rainy here for a good week, if not more. Do you think in any way this is related to the droppings I found this AM? Also, should I throw away the eggs in my stock or just the eggs I found with the wierd dropping??
just clean eggs, they are fine. when chickens have worms you might find some poop on the eggs, but those eggs are ok. BTW even droppings might be ok if you found them in the morning only. check if they improved later. morning poop usually is a bit nasty.
