    I am working on a page about chicken poo! Many of us have been referred to another poo page, so I thought it may be nice if we (BYC) had our own. After accumulating the photos [​IMG] we (Niftychicken said so!) can have an expert or vet (or several) take a look, and get their opinions as well. [​IMG]
    If you know the background, condition, or symptoms, please add that information with the photos of abnormal poo.
    Thanks,
    Kathy

    Oops, double post.

    I notice my photos above are too blurry, hope to get better ones.

    Here are the strange poos with green or yellow urates. These are from my almost 7mo hen. She suddenly stopped laying and started having these strange poops. She's also acting tired, not eating much food, but eating a lot of grass...I'm not sure what's wrong with her, but will post if I find out, as that would be good info to go along with the poos.

    I have read in a few places that green poo can be caused by not eatting enough causing undiluted bile from the liver or it can be a sign of liver failure. Not that I know anything, just what I have read.
