    Just as the title states. My girls are pooping what looks like miniature dog turds. Sorry but that's the only way I can describe it lol.

    Pics?

    Turds aren't a bad thing, unless they're overly dry. What are they eating?

    pellets and I give them meal worm treats also a mixture that comes in a bag with raisins, sunflower seeds, I think carrot, and assorted seed and grains.

    As long as you're offering them grit and making sure not to give them too many treats, that should be fine...Are they acting strange at all? If not, that's probably just how their poop looks. Lots of different shapes and textures and sizes of poop are benign.
