    Has anyone ever seen a large grape size dropping that is yellowish and rubbery? My hen was extremely ill. I wormed her & that didn't change anything. I thought maybe sour crop. Treated w/kefir milk. Two days later this very odd object was in her pen. She's in it alone. She seems better, is walking, & ate some mushed up pellets. Anyone know what this could be?

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG] It is probably a result of an infection in your chicken. Chicken infections are not puss-y/liquid-y like ours, but are instead a rubbery mass. I would keep giving her the kefir for a week or two to make sure she continues to improve and has an abundance of good bugs in her system.
