    [​IMG] The backyard has been scattered with this poop and it looks different. The white part is tinted with pink and the brown part is a blackish-grey color. Are they sick? Should i treat them with anything?

    Here is a link to a chart with pictures of normal and abnormal poop. Pink could be shed intestinal lining, which is normal. Could also be something in their diet - red berries perhaps... a little more information about their living arrangements and diet might help others figure out what is causing this. http://www.chat.allotment.org.uk/index.php?topic=17568.0
