    Do a search on this site for "splort" and see if this fits your situation. A couple of times a day chickens have cecal droppings, some days more than others depending on their diet. Hope this helps.

    * Nope, don't think so-- far as I know crumbles is all they're supposed to get. Any chance their food got wet, or their water got dirty??
