    I place a poop board under my chickens every night. They sure are helpful in spotting a problem. I am wondering if any of you think this poop I'm getting from one of my hens is something to be concerned about. Sorry they're so close up and graphic. Hehe! When you have backyard chickens, you get used to all things chicken I suppose! None of my girls appear to be sick that I can tell. All are scratching and eating and drinking normally. I sure would appreciate some input....tia Susan

    I take it you're concerned about the red stuff. It appears to be intestinal lining. Perfectly normal.

    It's January 10th in mid Ga. I saw the post from the chicken chick but I didn't see anything exactly like my images so I thought I would just put the question out there!
    Thanks!
