    One of my birds started pooping yellow-ish semi-solid poo yesterday. She doesn't seem egg bound and is also sitting around in the coop with a droopy comb and ruffled feathers.

    She is very ill, the poop suggests she has not been eating and the other things are consistent with many different possible problems.

    You should move her to a safe place to give her TLC and try to get her to eat and drink. And try to give her a thorough exam and post the findings to get more opines.

    Does the poop look like half cooked egg yolk? A picture of it would be very helpful and get you some more help.

    I think she has an impacted crop. She may have eaten a piece of twine in the coop. Will that be more like eating straw of plastic string??

    Here's a good article to read.

    What does her crop feel like? Big/flat, Squishy/hard...

    If her crop is blocked it's important to get it moving quickly!
