    Took this pic today. I've seen several of these and as best I can describe it, it looks like butterscotch pudding. Sorry
    All 14-18 week old chickens(5) are fine. Eating, drinking and being chickens.

    Looks pretty normal to me, it all depends on what they're eating as to whether it's 'solid' and dark/white or liquidy like in your pic. As long as they have adequate feed and fresh water I'd think nothing of it.

    Quote:That is normal for cecal poop. When it's real hot it will be kinda sorta clear and watery from the chickens drinking alot of water.

    It's just the heat. Give them a little electrolytes and make sure they have fresh clean water.
