    I'm a new chicken owner, & I'm afraid this is a terribly dumb question, but how can I tell the difference between cecal droppings and diarrhea?

    I have 5 Buff Orps, about 11 wks, and they have some normal poos & fewer poos that are pudding consistency and light brown to orangish. Normal or needs attention?
