Hi all,
I gave my chickens some food mix containing a variety of seeds. Later on they started to poop out the seeds and one of my chickens started to eat the seeds which were in the poop. Will that give my chicken diseases?? Will it make my chicken sick??
Any answers?

They'll do that. A little poo won't hurt them. The only thing to really worry about from it is coccidiosis, which usually does not occur in adults. It also requires a lot more poo-eating than picking out undigested seeds, it's usually poopy waterers that lead to it.
