    What treat/food/plant/etc. has your flock ever eaten that has given it the smelliest poop you have ever smelled?

    I ask because I shared my pear with a few hens today and not long thereafter I had to run gagging into the house! It was even worse than the days I give my ducks squid treats!

    So obviously my response is pears. What about you?

    Broody poo. Doesn't matter what goes in, broody poo comes out in golf ball sized piles on their daily trip out for food and will stink up the entire front porch... darn hen does it just to spite us I swear.

    OH MY! [​IMG] I thought those HUGE poos I used to see were from my roo, not from when my tiny little banty hen was broody. I've been blaming him all along, and I wondered why he stopped having such big ones. [​IMG]

    Bananas are one of my chickens' favorite treats...but I don't feed them unless I do it VERY early in the day, because their poo smells just AWFUL and I prefer it not to be in the coop that evening! EEK!

    I never thought about "broody poop", but when I think about it, I've always wondered how so much waste could be excreted by such a small critter!
