Chicken poop

Recommended Posts

Hi I have noticed one of my chicken has done a poop a little yellow but she doesn’t do this consistently. Does she need to be treated for coccidiosis? If so I have no clue what to give her and my other chick. Please could you advice? 
they are 4 weeks old. 

thank you

Probably a ceacal poo, which is excess digestive enzyme stored in the ceacal ducts. Strangely they are yellow in the UK, but always brown here in France, perhaps due to the digestive enzymes they add to the feed. Does your chick crumb contain ACS?

Anyway, I don't think you should be worried at all. Coccidiosis poos are black or worst case bloody and a runny mess.
