    We have an 8 month old white polish hen who usually acts pretty normal but just a couple minutes ago, she pooped and we are concerned that it might not be normal. Any help appreciated!

    Looks like cecal poop, do a photo search and you can look at lots of similar photos and feel better. Cecal poops are normal (a bacterial soup) smells & looks worse than regular chicken poop. Chickens have a cecum, people have an appendix.
    Expect to see some of it a few times a day. Some think that bubbly poop means parasites, which may be true- I don't know. Consider taking a sample of the poop (collect and mix a few from a few hours) and bring it to your vet and they can check if for parasites.
