Should I worry about this poop? (photo included)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

At first I thought maybe it was ALLLLL the raisins the girls eat. I stopped for several days, hubby even noticed which hen was making the poop. No raisins for 2 days and this is from sometime since last night. She seem in fine health nothing visible and she is perky and alert. (Dk Brahma, 3 1/2 months old)

That looks like ceacal poop. All chickens do that every few poops. It's nasty and it stinks but it's normal. I can range in color from light brown to really dark (the darker it is the worse it smells). Unless that is the only thing she's pooping all the time then I wouldn't worry too much

Thank you so much! I appreciate the post and I won't lie, totally relieved. I'll still keep an eye out to be cautious.

Yep, normal, cecal poop.

My mom had the same panick the first time she saw that kind of poo. She called me wondering if her hens were dying. Your ladies are lovely by the way. I may just need to add a brahma to my flock after seeing that beautiful girl.

I am so new at this I really think she's a doll. It's good to know others think she's as pretty as I think she is. 

 

.... I just realized it's her in my profile picture too.
