    Hi,

    I'm chicky sitting and one of the chickens has creamy brown poop and the others don't. I checked out a book from the library and I think she's a Barnevelder? Maybe. She isn't the same breed as the others so I'm not sure if she's sick or just a different breed. Neighbors didn't leave very good instructions and it's been four days and haven't answered emails.

    Any thoughts?

    I have limited experience, but there's an app on my iphone that shows pictures of chicken droppings. The pictures where the droppings are creamy brown appear to be normal.
    I think if it were bloody or red, there would be cause for concern. If the poo is real watery, it could mean it's too hot and drinking a lot or not eating enough.
    From what I see here, chicken poop can look MANY different ways and still be perfectly normal.
