Chicken poop

If you don’t want to see poop don’t read on…
In the grass the other day I saw some some strange looking chicken poop turns out it was only cecal poop so all good.  It did get me thinking of about keeping a closer eye on how my birds are doing. The chicken chick has a great set of photos of normal chicken poop in case you need to check out what’s going on with your chooks.
I read somewhere that at least once a month you should put a piece of paper under the roost at night and check it in the morning to see if there is anything funky going all on and also the general health of your birds.
Was actually an interesting exercise. I can’t believe how much poop four orpingtons produce over night. I was warned but wow. Positive news they all look normal. Will do this again next month.

    I used expensive diapers for the first 6 months, and they seemed fine. The last two batches in the larger sizes have had major problems. They split, leaving gooey silica all over my son and his bedclothes. It is a good thing he was wearing a one-piece, or else the silica would have been all over his bed. I thought I had gotten a bad batch, but the new box did the same thing. I think it is dangerous and negligent of them to have defective diapers out there. I’m using a new brand from here on out.
