    I just noticed that there are plops of foamy orangish poop in my run. It is not sulphur yellow like they say it is for Blackhead, but like a dark orangish color. I can find foamy white and foamy yellow when I google it, but not foamy orangish. And it is not their normal cecal poop either, it is way different. What does it mean?

    well, I am looking at the poop chart on a different computer and a couple of the cecal poops do look rather foamy dont they. I didnt see the detail on the other computer with an older monitor. It was a little more orange than the pictures, but it could just be the difference in the monitor color.

    I wouldnt worry too much about it unless you observe one of your chickens acting lethargic, not eating or drinking etc...
