    Are these normal poops? I have compared them to a few references but still can’t tell if it’s cecal or something abnormal. I didn’t see anything moving (worms) upon examination, but they did kick some dirt into it :)....

    Thanks for taking a look!

    Cecal poop:)
    The consistency can be all over the place when you factor in weather, how much they are drinking and what they may be eating. If they are all active, eating/drinking and no one is lethargic or acting "off", the they should be fine.

    The best way to rule out worms is to have a fecal float.

    My pullet's poops looked like that when I feed them electrolyte/vitamin water.
