    Quote:In my opinion, it would be worth the $23 to let the vet take a look under the microscope at a poop sample and let you know what you're dealing with. Then, you can treat accordingly. Green poop usually means 2 things; that the chicken isnt eating enough and excreting bile. The other is that it is a bacterial infection.

    Thank you for posting the link to the chart! Very helpful, one of my three had a poop in which they shed intenstinal lining- just like the photograph showed. So, so happy that there's no cause for concern.
