    I am new to the chickens world. I have 6 Americana's that are 12 weeks old. I found this weird poop today. Has anyone seen anything like it before?

    I will wait for the experts, as I'm not one, but since a lot of folks are on vacation and you may be waiting a while - did you check each of your hens' vents for blood? It looks like there is blood on the grass around this. If you find a bloody vent, how is the hen? Is she active, acting normal and eating/drinking normally? That looks very strange...

    My husband has informed me that it is not chicken poop.... that it is the remains to a rabbit our cat ate....
    It was right next to some chicken poop so I thought my chickens insides were coming out! :(
