    Not sure who this came from. My hens are just beginning [​IMG]
    to lay. We also have 2 guinea fowl but trying to rehome them.

    Could be just from drinking lots of water or heat, but if it continues, it's not normal.

    Could it be from to much scratch? My husband filled the feeder last and mixed the scratch in with their feed. We use pupes as feeders so i havent gotten it all out yet.

    I was sprinkling some outside in the run for maybe the last month but my husband didnt know it was scratch and added it in the feeder with the regular feed.

    If they're usd to getting some then it's probably not what caused the odd looking poop.
