    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.........

    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
