    I wouldn't be worried just yet unless the bird looks ill. Put it by itself for a few hours to make sure it is eating, drinking, and having some normal droppings.

    I have seen MANY different abnormal droppings that did not mean anything except what they ate.

    its a problem to know who did it since there are 11 and basically look identical and they have access to crumbles and grass/weeds only because they only venture appx 20 feet out of pen(they are still babies which is kind of heartbreaking given as they are due to be processed in 1 or 2 wks) so can't imagin they ate anything odd. I am not even 100% sure its poop accept it was in their area and no other critters over there then.
