    Maybe some chickens make noises when they poop? [​IMG]
    I'm sure it's not a problem.

    Don't worry, they eat so much that it goes though pretty quick and comes out big ploppy sloppy and stinky. If they are still under 24/7 lighting, see if you can't either feed 12 on 12 off, or go by natural day light to prevent flip (death).

    If making wierd noises when you poop is something to be concerned about, I need to call 911.

    Quote:What my meat chickens poop looks a lot like what they just ate. It's definitely wetter and sloppier than my layer hens. I don't know why that is, but they've always been that way (I've done several batches), so I wouldn't be very concerned unless they develop other problems as well.
