Pink capped poo

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

This morning while sifting the poop out of the PDZ on their poop board I found a couple poops that the white is light pink instead of white.  I've not seen this before.  All chickens are eating and drinking well.  The chickens that were molting are now getting all their new feathers, some are through but a couple have a few more new feathers to go before finishing their molt.  They have layer feed available all day long (and of course fresh water) and in the morning they get a scoop of whole corn mixed with some green peas and lentils (more corn than peas and lentils).  This is the first time I've seen the pink instead of white on the poop.  I only saw a couple but want to make sure it's not something serious.

That is known as pink urates or urine, and it can be normal during the nighttime. They are normally white most of the time.

Thanks for the reply.  After I posted I found another saying the same thing.  It's the first time I've ever seen it since owning chickens.
