    over the last 2 days , i've noticed that some of my birds are pooping soft piles of poo ..... not the typical logs so to speak ......... im feeding them layena pellets , and corn ....treats have included bread, eggs , oats, bacon grease(in my flock blocks) hot dogs , and one time i gave them cream cheese that was wrapped with chicken ....... should i be concered or is it normal for them to have poops like that when they eat certain foods ?

    I would skip the hot dogs and bacon grease and keep the bread level low.
    Hot dogs/bacon usually contain salty additives and preservatives...if you have barn cats they will love this stuff.

    our six girls will eat anything [​IMG] we give them ALL of our leftover edibles even the greasy stuff, but in moderation --- if its too much I'll break it down in smaller portions [​IMG]
