    One of the chickens were on a plastic chair and released a watery load and poo. At first I thought this could be some strange yellow poo. (Maybe it is.) Is this poo or just pee and poo together? The white part is loose too. Don't know what to think.

    I have to say, the feces remind me of blackhead. I have seen it mostly in turkeys, but it does occur in chickens. If you check in the search bar, you should get more help. Chickens do not urinate, the white or yellowish part of their feces is the "urine" substance. Good luck with your hen.

    May or may not be anything to worry about.

    Is this the only one? Then just watch and see if it happens again or if he shows any abnormal behaviors.

    Have there been others like this? If so, then when were the last time they were wormed? If it's been a while or not at all then you may want to start a wormer. Also "could" be a sign of coccidiosis in which you will want to start them on Corid (amprolium).

    I only saw the poo of this one. It did it right in front of me.

    The chickens general are making some types of rumbling noises with their mouths. They are not eating much now. They are definitely sick. This poo thing was a new development. My farm worker was giving them dewormer and another medicine I need to get the name of. He consulted with the vet on the phone but now with this poo we ask the vet to make a house call.

    I actually meant was this the only time this chickens poop looked like that. But you say there are other birds acting poorly. Sorry to hear that.

    What type of wormer was used? Some wormers like Wazine does not treat all worms. The name of the other med will be important too. Let us know what the vet says.

    With posts like this, I'm sure glad this board isn't about humans.[​IMG]
