    When I first got my Silkies they had some pretty gaseous poos. I think it all came from the stress of being shipped and the new food. But today, one of my EE roos had a farty poo...[​IMG] and he is 6 wks old.

    Yes, both chickens AND chicks experience flatulence.

    And it's nowhere near as bad as either one of my miniature dachshunds!

    I too have had experiences with gaseous chickens. I adopted a silkie hen whom I named Walter (after the children's book series, Walter the Farting Dog) because of her...ah...proficiency for playing the butt tuba.
