    I recently introduced new chickens into my flock, and i know i do not have black head in my soil, but i still worry. One of my turkey's poops was very large and very dark, and spread out.
    just wondering if this is a sign of blackhead, I mean she eats fine still and everything, isn't skinny or lethargic, so i might just be overreacting. Her head is kinda blue though. IT's always kind of been like that.

    I think its just what shes been eating my two girls commonly have very different poos , sometimes their solid with lots of white and other times their not so solid and very dark i dont think there is any need for concern.
