    I took my broody modern hen out of her cage to she can walk around for a little bit. When i set her down she kinda squated and started shaking her booty. At first i thought she was dancing [​IMG] A few seconds later she blew up literally. This is what came outa her: [​IMG]

    Here is a closer look.........

    Im not sure but is that blood in the middle? Is this normal? Im kinda woried about her.

    That appears to be blood.

    And that is one large turd. I'd be concerned. I've never seen a birds poo look like that.

    Just looks like "broody poop" to me. Since they're setting all day on the nest they don't take a poo every 5 minutes, so when they do go it's nasty!

    I had read that broody poop is large and stinky, but the pic, even tho gross, helps me to realize how bad it will be. Thank you for posting a gross graphic pic. Think of it as a learning tool for some of us.

    I have never seen poop like that. i have 2 broodys hens right now & when they come off the nest their poop looks nothing like that. Theirs is as big as a golf ball with a nice white cap and a hugh brown end. And it does smell horrible. Hope there is nothing wrong with the hen
