Has anyone seen chicken poo like this?

post #1 of 3

I recently bought four laying hens from someone and I found this in the nesting box last night. It has me a little freaked out. I just hope I haven't got some chickens with issues and put my flock in danger. Can anyone tell me why it looks like this?

It looks like normal stool with some coral urates as well as white urates. The coral urates may be normal overnight in droppings. Here are 2 articles about chicken droppings:

Ok. Thank you. I just thought it looked really large. Almost the size of a dogs droppings.
