    I just went out to the run to give the chickens some treats and, as usual, someone had pooped in the food dish! (I am making a feeder from PVC pipe! I better get a move-on that one!!!) This poop was HUGE! It looked like cat poop, from a very large Tom cat! It looked like a tube of lipstick! It was pretty solid too! My girls are getting big but I guess I just didn't realize how much they had grown! I know a cat didn't get into the coop. It had only been a few hours since I had been out to the coop and the dog would have gone mental if a cat came in the yard. Is this size poop normal?

    do you have any broodies? broody poops are HUGE! btw, you shouldn't worry unless it's abnormal in any way (bloody, greenish, runny, etc.)
