Not enough poop? Shouldn't I be happy?

I have two new 17 month old pullets, and I'm a little worried about them. They don't seem to be pooping (or pooping very little) overnight. On one hand, it's nice that I don't have to clean. On the other hand, I worry about them. Does this mean that they aren't eating/drinking enough? They have been in my care for three nights.

I guess it was just a matter of getting settled. This morning, I didn't have to worry about this issue, lol. Now I have just as much to clean up from my new pullets as I have to clean up from my existing birds. I am looking forward to introducing the new girls to the flock so I can quit doing double-chores every day!

Thanks for chiming in, so lucky. It's always nice to get some reassurance when I'm worrying.
