    I've been reading so much about chicken diseases like coccidiosis and such that it's making me paranoid. Can someone take a look at these poos and tell me if these are normal? I have three 4 month olds that I raised as chicks and 2 older ones that I brought on 2 weeks ago. I started noticing orange poos and diarhea when the new girls came.

    Thanks in advance.

    Looks "good" to me....There's a link with pictures of all the different "types" of poop they make. Let me see if I can find it, will edit this when I find it.

    Edited:

    Hope this gets you to the right place.....http://chat.allotment-garden.org/index.php?topic=17568.0
    It's Topic 4/The Chicken Keeper Guide on The Poultry Help Forum. It's been posted on a thread here, maybe in the search box type in Poop Pictures?

    Thanks Nanny for the link. I saw that there was a whitish abnormal poo. Do you think this one looks abnormal like the one in the photo?[​IMG]

    Looks like someone maybe drinking too much water? I'm no expert, hoping someone who has MORE experience will peep in soon. Try putting a tablespoon of ACV (with the Mother; Bragg) in a gallon of their water, change regularly. Helps with digestive issues, I start my chicks from day one with it and ferment my food.
