I was reading on another thread, since closed, that it is not normal for chickens to produce the truely heroic amounts of poop that they do when roosting. Is this true?! The writer was saying that the problem is our feed, that chickens are not vegetarians and yet we feed them strictly grain diets, and that the copious poop is from undigested, unutilized food. I feed my dogs a lot of raw meat and bones and it has made an amazing difference in their general health, no more ear, skin or picky gland infections. Are we feeding our chickens an inappropriate ( yet undeniably convenient ) diet?? I'm thinking on how to change up my feed, add cat food perhaps, and see what happens with the pooping thing.
