    Ok, I'm concerned by this poop. Any thoughts, other than it's really gross?

    Seriously, it looks fine to me. Is it like this every poo or just every once in awhile? I think I remember reading somewhere on here that every 10th or so poo is like this.

    Thanks for the chicken poo chart! I was getting worried. It was my one and only marans pullet that did that and I was about to panic!

    it's cecal poo. it's different from normal poo, from a different part of the digestive tract; they do it a couple times a day and it's normal. [​IMG]

    Quote:Welcome. [​IMG] The poop chart is a great resource with all those pictures, but it's best not to look at that right before/after a meal. Looks like ceceal poop to me.

    Thanks for the chart. I dove right in and had to slow down as it got grosser and grosser but is a great reference.
