    My chicken has been popping like this for a week now....nothing has changed and the other chickens poop is normal, should I be concerned? She also has not had anything orange to eat. [​IMG]

    Is every single poop like this?

    Chicken poop can range greatly in color, appearance, texture and consistency. Normally 1 poop out of every 8-10poops is what is called "cecal poop", this is what your orange poop somewhat looks like.

    To get a good idea if she is doing this every single poop is to cage her overnight on some paper towels - makes it easy to see what she is doing. If there is normal poop in with the mix the next morning, then it's most likely fine. If every single poop is like this, then you may want to take a sample to your vet for a fecal float test to check for any parasites.
