    i have a white leghorn that chronically seems to have sat in a black poo.

    can gleet look black on a white chicken? the gleet pics i have seen don't really show it up as black.

    i guess i will treat the flock with vinegar/yogurt/acidoph/garlic anyways if i don't get any other pointers!

    thx in advance!
