I have 9 Black Spanish poults, and 2 Blue Slate, all are 11 weeks old. 6 weeks ago I found a poult dead in the coop in the morning, autopsied him and found cheesy masses in the cecal sacs and a spotty, necrotic liver (link to spotty liver picture ). The poult had not seemed depressed, though he was pretty skinny. Since then I've been watching the poults like a hawk for signs of blackhead. I am seeing an array of questionable poops which are cataloged here for your viewing pleasure: link to poop pictures, all taken this morning in the poultry yard. I am not witnessing any depression, drooping, withdrawl, etc. Birds are curious, active, hungry. They seem to drink a lot of water, but then I've been loading them with a ton of cayenne, and it's still warm (in the 70's) where we live. When I back off the cayenne, the poops get yuckier, when I load up, they get better. I also put ACV in the water regularly, and give whey or yogurt with garlic and olive oil a couple of times a week. I'm not so worried about the variations in poo color, since they have a varied diet, and are currently cleaning up the vegetable bed. I've never wormed my chickens, but autopsied the intestines of a slaughtered bird about 2 months ago, and found no sign of worms. I am concerned about the poops, however. Can you give me feedback, please? Do any of the poops look like blackhead poops? Cocci poops? Worm load poops? Thanks in advance for your help!
