    I found one of my white birds with blue on his back looks like ink. Now i am seeing blue poop in different places not much, i dont even know which ones pooping blue, [​IMG]

    It is not green not even close, it is pure blue.

    I think I read that beets can turn poop blue. Have they been eating any lately? [​IMG]

    Have your birds been eating anything with food coloring in it?

    Could they by any chance have eaten some berries that are blue (maybe from a bush nearby ) - I would love to know why this happens....! Wild birds may drop berries or other feed near where your chickens eat.

    Mine only poop boring colours!
