    Someone is pooping pink. Looks just like the other poops, just pink and white instead of grey and white. Could this be an indication of getting ready to lay? BTW - they aren't eating anything red or pink - just their feed.

    Thanks!

    Yes. I actually saw that link after I posted this - I guess it falls in the range of normal. A perfect looking poop ([​IMG]) other than color, so I guess it's okay. I was just wondering of it indicates readiness to lay.

    Quote:Nah, IMO it doesn't. The thing that indicates a pullet is reaching the point-of-lay would be comb and face color turning red. Also, often times a pullet will start squatting for their rooster (or you, if you don't have a roo).
