    When I cleaned out my coop today, I noticed that one of my hens had two blobs of black, runny/gummy, very smelley poo. I have never seen this before. Is this a sign she may be getting sick? They all free ranged today and I didn't notice any other symptoms. All my hens are 5 months old. Thank you for your help!

    Yep maybe she ate a few extra bugs or something?! No need to worry I don't think;)
