    Hello there!

    Chickens have two kinds of poop that are totally normal. The regular poop, which is the black poo with the white around it, and then there's a runny, brown colored poop, which is called cecal droppings. It looks like diahrrea and it's kinda stinky. Sort of a rusty brown color, and I've noticed my chicks do it when they get excited......

    It's perfectly normal!

    Mine have it every morning, when I first let them out- they run around like madchickens, then poop the smelly, runny stuff-
