    I have two little chicken. They are three weeks old and today i discovered they had balls of hard poop on their feet. I soaked the yellow ones feet in warm water then lightly scraped the poop off. It went well until she pooped and it looked like this!!! Please tell me what i should do and if its normal or not! I also have five Americana chickens and their poop has never looked like this before! Please help! I'm really scared!!!!!

    I'm really glad I saw this. I thought for sure one of my chickens had diarrhea and possibly something serious even though she was acting fine in all other ways. I even went so far as getting the "hospital coop" ready for her. I was looking all over on how to treat for it and find here that it is a normal poop. You don't know how relieved I am. But then, as fellow chicken lovers, you probably do know how relieved I am. Sure hope yours is fine, too.
