    My chickens are pooping carmel brown poop, and its a little more runny then normal I looked it up and it said ceacal, Should I be concerned? I treated them for cocci 4 days ago could that be the cause?

    I believe that I read something saying that it's normal for a chicken to have a cecal dropping every 10 poops or so? Mine have been doing this occasionally, too.

    They'll have those every once in a while, it's normal.

    Sometimes my chooks will drop two in a row, nothing to be worried about.
