    It will be huge. Sometimes it will be sloppy but sometimes look just like a HUGE regular dropping. Something the size a small dog may drop.....

    It will be REALLY REALLY REALLY SMELLY! It will smell like something died, halfway outta the hen's rearend. [​IMG]

    Edited to add: I have 3 broody hens right now - and I pick up the poo right away and carry it to the compost heap it smells to high heaven!

    THe last poop my hen dropped - she dropped IN the nest box, with her babies! [​IMG] I had to scoop it out - it looked like TAR and smelled like a dead skunk! [​IMG] it was WAY bigger than my fist... HUGE! If you're worried you'll miss it - relax - its like being slapped with a wet fish!

  8. Quote:That is so nasty. But broody poop isnt supposed to be like that.

    It is very large and brown, with a big white colored end.
     
  9. I do not have a dog......but I swore that a dog got in my coop and pooped! It looked just like dog turds. SOLID! Not liquid. And please stand back when she does decide to let loose!!!!! It is not something you would like to get hit with! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
