    She will be alright. First year birds are known to have a false start more than any. Its the ones that dont come out that you really worry about

    I know it can be awful to see things that you have not seen before, and wonder if you should be taking some kind of action.

    I suspect there may be some yolk or egg white mixed in with her poop, too. As long as it passes, things should be okay.

    Does she have free choice oyster shell and/or layer food?

    And I really understand about being so attached to these dear creatures.
