Hi all, This morning when I cleaned the coop, Quasimodo's droppings had yellow urates. I read that this is a sign of kidney or liver failure. Has anyone else had a chicken with yellow urates? What was the diagnosis? Quasimodo is one year old this week. She is a Silver-laced Wyandotte who is free-fed organic layer pellets and oyster shell. She gets about twenty grains of mixed scratch (about 1/3 of a palm full) as a treat in the morning when I clean the coop, occasional lettuce or radish greens, and access to the lawn and yard about four times a week for an hour or so. I put three drops of liquid PolyViSol in one of her large water bowls when I refresh it each morning, and she has a second and third water fountain available. She has never been wormed or treated for lice or mites, but I clean the coop and run daily and check the vent area of each bird several times a week. No shavings or straw, I have sand in the run and clean it daily. They have access to a small dirt yard cleaned daily. She is laying an egg a day, she is not thin, and she seems perfectly fine otherwise. My other two chickens seem thin in comparison to her. Any suggestions?
