In the Brooder
- Feb 21, 2019
This chicken was eating drinking and acting normal. Then found her dead under the coop. I have never seen any of my chickens with this color poop before. Can anyone tell me??
She hasn’t started laying yet I check pretty frequently for wet butts but I do have a decent amount of birds I could have missed it. She had a decent weight breast bone not sticking out or anything.Sorry for your loss. I have only seen that color poop with eating red cabbage or blueberries. The caked on poop looks like she has been having diarrhea and possibly problems passing droppings because it was caked. Did you notice any symptoms of lethargy, not laying eggs, weight loss, or a crop disorder? Most state poultry vets can do a necropsy to find a cause of death. Here is a list of them to contact:
