Poopy advice

Lively cockerel makes this poop, good or bad??
post #2 of 8

Is this every poo or just occasionally.

About every 7-8 poops will be what is called a cecal poop which is usually brown and wet (like pudding).

A lot of times it has to do with diet. If they have had something with a lot of water content (melons, ripe fruits, etc.) it can be a bit more loose.

 

Here's a poop chart for reference:

Could have been the fruit.

I would just keep an eye on him and if he has constant loose poop, you may want to limit the treats/scraps to see if that helps, if not worming him would be second avenue to pursue.

post #6 of 8

Valbazen  1/2 ml orally and then repeated in 10 days for each chicken is an excellent wormer. Fenbendazole (Safeguard, Panacur) is also good at 1/4 ml per pound for 5 days in a row.
