    Hi everyone!

    We have had chickens for about a month now (3 regular size hens and 2 bantam hens).One of them started pooping stinky orange colored feces. We have continued feeding them the same as what they had at their last farm (organic pellets). They are technically free range but with the snow haven't left their coop much. Should I be concerned about this poop? All the chickens are acting normal and laying very regularly (except the banties who haven't started laying yet).

    Thanks in Advance!

    So I've been in various threads, but for some reason, when I click the poop chart link, I can only see 2 or 3 of the pictures. The rest just show a photobucket logo. Am I doing something wrong?

    Dang, you're right. That is a shame. That was such a helpful tool for so long.

    I found a person's blog with the same pictures: http://www.the-chicken-chick.com/2012/02/whats-scoop-on-chicken-poop-digestive.html

    This poop chart is great. My chicken, Ariabelle, as you may have been reading is still sick. I looked on your chart and so far hers is normal. Thank you for the chart.
