    My polish crested hen, about 13 weeks has started pooping formed poops more like chihuahua poop size, but soft and I'd have to say maybe marshmallowy soft. Is that normal? She just was traumatized and her crest ripped out by some other chicken yesterday and today I notice these weird poopies! She may have been doing it a while and it's gone unnoticed. I don't know. Am I nuts to be worried or what? I asked about her crest injury in another thread too. Thanks for helping a really big novice. I love these stupid chickens. They are so cool.It's amazing.

    Her poops are normal. Just wait til you get ducks. You'll be thankful for the chihuahua poops. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the positive and reassuring responses. Hers are just different than any one elses so I thought there might be something wrong as a newbie. No I don't have alot of spare time but I do care about the welfare of my charges.
