    My daughter was watering the chickens and noticed this in the run. Is this normal? This is our first year owning chickens and we haven't seen this before. It is hot right now 107 degrees today. They are also on antibiotics for a bacterial infection. Thanks.:oops:

    Thanks. It looks dry but it was actually gooey. I just did a double check and it's actually dark green and just the outside is black. I think it was indeed baked by the sun lol.

    This group is so supportive and so kind. I'm a New Egg and I'm so very grateful to know there is a place I can go and ask questions no matter how silly they may seem. If I saw that black poop I would have freaked out too! Glad all is well.

    Yes I've met quite a few. Out of all the forums I've been on I feel the people are the friendliest here. :)
