    Hoping this is normal poop...but I haven't seen anything like it under the roost before, so decided to post and ask you all who have more experience. Found this clump under the roost this morning, so I took outside the straw mat with suspicious poop and put it on the ground to get a better look in the daylight. I don't want to freak out if this is just rusty-colored cecal poo, however I don't think I've seen it so rusty colored before. No one is acting sick. They are seem totally normal and healthy right now, in their usual spirited and feisty ways.

    Suitable for framing.
