This is the STRANGEST dropping I have EVER seen! Should I worry????
Did bird consume a lot of fiberous greens like some sort of hay, especially without getting some for a while? If yes, are you certain bird is getting enough grit?
I did feed them greens a couple of days ago, and they do have grit at all times. their coop has straw in it. I can't say if she's acting weird, as for the last few days it's been pouring! So none of the chickens are as perky as usual...
The mass looks very much like a mass of fiber passed that was not properly triturated / ground by gizzard. The bird probably did not feel well during process. To get a similar feeling and product with yourself; try consuming a large amount of asparagus that was picked a little to late or simply a lot of celery. To get maximal effect, chew minimally.
So I shouldn't worry? They always have clean food,water,grit,and egg shells, and I clean their coop regularly, we've just had awful weather the last couple of days.
Check their night feces left while roosting tonight. If that looks normal then all has passed.
Ok, thank you, I'll let you know in the morning.
I agree. It could be only a one time thing and dependent on what the chicken ate. I gave my chickens red cabbage a couple of times and noticed the color of their droppings was an odd color too.
