I'm so glad this guide to poo is here. I keep forgetting the link.

It is always my first port of call. I had thought my chicks may be ill (all appeared healthy just the occasional odd poo) now I know that it is quite normal.

Can't believe I have had chickens for two weeks and spent most of my time stressing about whether their poo is ok or not.

Thank you thank you thank you. Not sure I would ever have found it on the other site.

Now time for me to de-stress. All is normal.

Very helpful!! I was just going to post asking about my hens poo as it had meaty lumps in it and the only info i could find was not helpful as only mentioned runny blood or lash being yellow colored. Im certain now that it is intestinal lining she was shedding, i didnt even know they did that! I wish the chicken books i had were more informative.
Thanks for posting

Mine do these also, they do not come out black though, it is usually when they have done a wet poop and it has dried.
