    i know this seems a funny q'tn but ive noticed a whole range of diff poos from my chookie...do certain types of poo mean diff things like humans? as in a runny poo or hard poo is not good poo for us...or is a chooks poo related to their food directly? (or course apart from when they r sick...though im guessing at that too cuz i dont have sick chooks) is their poo any indication of their health? is it a good indication of what they r eating and how much? do diff types of food "cork" them up like in people? what is the best all rounder food for chooks on a daily basis?
    ta guys
