Black Poop? - Page 2

post #11 of 15

Actually, I have the same thing! I have 2 Buff Orps, a RIR, a Barred Rock, and a Golden Comet, a Golden Laced Wyandotte, and a Silver Leghorn. I have noticed that one egg each day or so is "stained" black or dark green as if ink was on it. Then, I noticed a black, tarry poop on the cement. Voila! Mystery solved, but as a Medical Technologist, I find this very disturbing, is this a  lot of blood?

 

I have it narrowed down to one of the Orps, (they are just now beginning to lay), or the RIR, who has been laying since March. It has been unseasonably hot here in the Seattle area, I go out and they are laying in holes and panting. They have plenty of shade and water, and are eating normally. Everyone is fine in the morning and evening, and they all energetically sqaubble at "snack time".

 

Thanks for any info!

I have 1 chicken with  black poop..just started 2 days ago.. Chicken has a limp , I think sustained from an illegal foray into the vegie patch and hooked up on the fence on way out . Does a lot of sitting , and head shaking ( headache ??)

Anyone got a clue what this is ??

Thanks for the link. My chicks are 2 or 3 months old and my Rodie is having a few tarish black poops and so is my rooster, an Americana, which is probably because they stay away from the group and I can't get a good chance of cleaning the coop because of the amount of straw we have.🐓🐔

I'm worried, I have been looking at poop for days. My faverolle has a funny poop I can't find.
She is acting funny, I have given her 2 baths she has been inside for 2 nights. She is not eating.

What is that yellow mucus poop that chickens leave around the place .. 

They are usually very sick , like they have a bad headache or stomach ache ???

Anyway we lost one chicken after about 2 weeks of I think agony .

Then 2 weeks after another one went into same condition , so what the ??

My wife who is 'Chinese' has these Chinese  stomach ache tablets so she crushed one tablet into a small amount of water and spoon fed chicken with this mixture

Almost immediate turn around in condition and wellbeing .

we did this for about 4 days and cured her from almost certain death ..

Now we put a small amount in their water supply , So we see what happens   .

 

Cheers
