    Some of my roosters poo doesnt look right. It is solid but green. what could I feed them to fix this. I feed them the 16% layer crumbles jsut like the rest of my chicks so I dont know what it could be.

    Green indicates lack of absorbed nutrients. you might consider feeding a probiotic like live culture yogurt.

    I just read something today that says they have two kinds of poop, the normal brown and then an occasional green from ducts in their intestines, but if they are green all the time I have no idea:rolleyes:

    no its not all of the time. I just noticed it today when cleaning their pens there was some in the shavings so I didnt know if they were sick or what was going on.
