My leghorns and my original RIR all have neat, dry poop-balls. The new RIR's have gooey, gloppy, pudding-like poop puddles. This is completely disgusting, as it gets everywhere in the shed. I think they poop MORE than the originals, too, because even though there are now 6 birds in my shed (2 more than before, because Connor and Brigid are still camping in the upstairs bathroom) What I am wondering is, could all this runny poop be due to the stress of a new home? They have been here 8 days now (though it feels like 8 years!). Also, I changed from the regular Purina Layena in the blue bag to the Omega-3 Layena. I notice the new feed has somewhat less fiber (maximum 6% in the new one vs max 7% in the old). Could this be the culprit? Or, is this just the way these guys are? If so, they are going to make my straw lady very happy!
