    Wondering if this poop is ok? If you look back at my thread "chickens dying?!?" It explains what has been wrong with our chickens. We culled the obvious sick ones as to not spread the disease furthermore. I wanted to make sure this poop wasn't a cause of worms or anything else so we can treat our healthier chickens properly that they may continue to get better! [​IMG][/IMG]

    The poops at the top look normal, although the urates look coral colored, but that can be normal overnight or first thing in the morning. The second one looks normal with a mix of regular and cecal poop. You may want to go to your usual vet and take some fresh morning droppings in a bag to test for cocci, worms, yeast, and bacteria. Remember that if the sick chickens had a chronic respiratory disease, such as MG or coryza, the others will probably carriers for life also. That's why testing or a necropsy is good to know what you are dealing with. Any new birds added could quickly become sick as well. Your state dept. of agriculture or local county extension agent may help with that.
