    In my opinion they both look normal. It looks like your hen urine, that's the white stuff on top, may be a little loose, but nothing to worry about. Just my opinion.

    The bottom one looks normal to me, but the top one looks a little iffy, especially if she never has a solid one.

    Alright thanks! It's just that they're not eating that much. ... Or at all I can't tell which is worrying me alot. Especially in this hot weather in dubai. Any follow up would help!

    When I'm concerned about one of mine I get a baseline weight on them, then weigh them every few days. Poults should gain weight daily and adults should not lose any weight.

    My turkeys seem very healthy, but their poop is a runny brown. Doesn't seem normal. They are three month old rio grande. Free range supplemented with chick grower. I'm new to turkeys so your help would be appreciated. Thank you

    Im new at turkeys too but it seems that everybody gets a little runny in the very hot weather. Whenever it happens to my hens (chicken and turkeys) I start with a 24 hour Epsom salt water. Stress, including hot weather, brings on the runs too.. Do you think so, Kathy?
