post #21 of 28

I had this happen to all of my chickens once.  It was during the winter and I was feeding them small bunches of alf alfa turns out there was some weed in it that turned the yolk green.

Sounds like a weed maybe the culprit

Consuming the weed shepherds purse can cause green yolks, perhaps one hen enjoys it.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, bunnies, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

Why can't my days always be Sunnyside up?

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

I just found one of these, I've never seen it before.  My birds are kept in an enclosed run, we throw them handfuls of grass everyday.  I hadn't noticed anything different in what we picked for them.  No acorns, no cottonseed meal.  It's going into cookies, I'll post back if we die.

Update: the cookies are delicious.  After more research, and a walk through the yard, oldhenlikesdogs was probably right.  We have shepherd's purse growing around the run.

Glad the cookies were delicious, is there such a thing as a non delicious cookie.😀
