    One of my hens (about a year old barred rock) had a really frothy poop today. I have never seen this before, is it something to be concerned about?

    Thanks in advance

    Frothy yellow poop can mean worms. So I'd take a sample to the vet for a faecal float test.

    what color is it?

    always a smart idea to have the fecal test done.

    I would suspect parasites.

    ok, hmmm...it was white to clear. Could stress cause it? We have had crazy wicked storms, the temp jumped to over 90, and we added 6 new pullets to our previous flock of 3.

    If they've been drinking a lot that could cause it too...
    Usually worms is yellow and frothy.
    White and clear is can be pee.
