I just noticed 2 odd looking poops. I have no idea how to look for lice or mites. do I just grab the tail and lift to look? Here are the 2 odd poops that one of them just did. they both have poop on their butt, one a little more than the other.Welcome to BYC!!
Sometimes poop does get stuck on the feathers. You will need to clean it off with warm soap water/bath. If it is cold outside, you will have to dry her off completely before returning her outside but if it is summer and during the day, she will dry off in the sun.
You will want to inspect her vent to see if anything is odd and check for mites or lice.
Thank you! I will try that. I want to try cleaning them. We are in FL so it's not cold, high of 80 for the next 3 days. They are new to me though so I don't want to traumatize them.I would stop feeding kale to see if the poop becomes normal.
There are certain foods that can cause alarming poops.
I was told they were eating layer feed. Not sure on age. I was just told they would be laying soon. They laid an egg during transport yesterday.If they weren't eating layer feed at the time, a change in feed can cause diarrhea also. Do you know how old they are?
