Cecal poop vs regular poop


These are overnight poops from a 7 year old rooster that appears to be quite healthy. On the left is a normal cecal poop, on the right are pretty normal regular poops, though one pile has a little spec of red.


This is the same poop moved to a paper towel. regular poop on top, cecal on bottom.


Same poop again. Notice the creamy texture of the cecal poop compared to the regular poop. Interestingly, I think maybe I can see a cecal worm in this picture. Will go back and see if I can verify.


Normal peafowl cecal poop:


Abnormal peafowl cecal poop:


Abnormal chicken cecal poop:

For some reason the Christmas fudge I was munching on lost its appeal to me.....

THANK YOU!! I had no clue about any of that! I worked about 10 years total as a vet tech but we didn't do birds so I never learned that kind of stuff. I assumed diarrhea type poo was a sure sign of illness. So again you all have taught me something important. Thanks again. Going out to check on them again. Will let ya know if things are normal.

I forgot about the third type of poo... this is what I call "The Combo", it's part cecal poop, part regular poop.

that I call "the combo", it's mosty cecal poop, but has a little regular poop matter, too.

Wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

I fly out tomorrow :cd and lose Christmas Eve day in transit.

Ralph - did you get your tickets or did the postal service keep them???

I'll probably be on periodically to get my turkey/poultry fix - so please post lots of pictures, some of us will need them :D. Spent most of my day with the birds today, cleaned out the barn really well and put a new roof over half of the hens outside run. DH will look after everyone, but he doesn't give them the same amount of attention that I do. I did tell DH that he could send Turkules to freezer camp while I'm gone - he won't have the patience to put up with his shennanigans every day. Unfortunately Turkules has had every opportunity to get over his attitude, but it's been a year and he still attacks everyone he sees (including me). It's probably long overdue, but I've been procrastinating :/
