    I am very new to chickens so have patience with me please.
    What color is chicken poop saposed to be. I have 2, 1 year old hens that have greenish formed poop. All my 3 month old pullets have white to yellow formed stools except one. She has had loose runny yellow stools since the day I brought her home. She was 1 week old at the time.

    Is this a silly question or is something wrong with that pullet? She is eating and growing like all her sisters. Thanks, Lisa

    Hi,
    The poop chart ddawn gave you is good,..

    As you get to know chickens and learn it gets a little less stressful,.. my chickens poop can change from moment to moment because they free range all day and also get garden treats,.. watermelon gave mine red poop and scared me the first time they had it,..
    now I just worry about keeping the poop off my PORCH please! [​IMG]
