    Two out of the last 5 days I've noticed some manure that is long, almost looking like cat poop. No cat can get in the coop, so that's not the case. Do chickens poop like this once in awhile? Intestinal lining or something? The color is brown-greenish. One hen just started laying last week, could that be related? The three chickens all look and act normal.

    This sounds gross, but can you take some pictures? Sounds pretty normal to me, but a visual reference helps.

    Apparently there is no problem, say my chicken obsessed peers at work. This is a result of what she's been eating, so I'm going to watch that a little more closely!

    :D Yeah, bird poop varies a lot. Basically unless it's bloody/accompanied by weird symptoms, you don't need to panic. I'd still like to see the poop though...
