    Oh, how I love examining poop! [​IMG]

    Anyway, I've been seeing, every day, a poop that is not on the poop page, and want to know if it's normal. They are very dark, nearly black, very skinny, maybe half the size of a pencil, and tapered on both ends. There looks to be somewhat undigested strands of grass visible. I can not figure out which chicken is doing this, but will if it signals something bad...

    I think it's fine. My girls do that sometimes too. Long stringy poop with grass in it.
