    is this "poop" an indication of illness? sometimes the same chicken releases a clear viscous looking yellowish "pooop." the hen seems normal.

    Looks like caecal poo to me. It's normal.

    thank you. i'm am now quite verse in chicken droppings, although, the range of what normal droppings are is huge. i guess i'll just look for blood, froth and worms. i just found out that caecal droppings even exist.
