    I know this is nasty, but I would love to see if I can figure out what is going on with my SLW.

    This picture below is from yesterday morning. I'd been scooping droppings out of their house, hence the sand and pebbles in the scooper. You can see how the urate is yellowish, and has a weird consistency.

    The picture below is from today. You can see the color difference with the other droppings in the bucket. The sand makes it all look even worse, sorry about that!

    I forgot to add the answer to the question someone asked about her having been wormed: No, I've never wormed any of my chickens. I haven't noticed anything in their droppings that makes me think they are having a problem with that. What should I be watching for in case I need to worm her?

    Thanks!
