    I was looking around for the yellow poo thing and found it could be liver damage or Anorexia! I feed my chickens everyday alot so I don't think its Anorexia so could the Poisionouse D.E I put in the coop cause liver damage? ( I cleaned it out as soon as I found out it was bad. 2 days after)

    Doubt liver damage would show up that fast. If some was ingested, it is possible to cause some liver damage, but respiratory irritation would show up first I would think. The liver does act like a filter. If you haven't found any more, I bet she just got into something you didn't see.

    You know what? I don't think I'd worry about it.

    Look at the chicken, not the poo. Does the chicken seem healthy? Active, bright-eyed? Eating well? Great, probably nothing wrong.

    Sometimes I think we have become a society of poop-watchers. Have you ever had a loose stool, or an odd colored stool? Probably. I know I have (especially after too much chinese take-out). Most of the time, it takes care of itself.
