Hi, Today we notice the girls poops are off colored, lite carmel to yellowish and little runny. Reading about worms this can be one of the symtoms. They our seventeen weeks old. The weather here is warm to hot. They look and act healthy. They free range daily. It is just in the younger birds not the older ones. Is this normal?? Thanks for any help!! If this is worms what kind?? We have no Chicken Vet's here.

Thanks Nancy

The proper term is droppings. You are looking at cecal droppings.

They are 17 weeks. Cecal droppings are very brown in color. These are very yellow not dark brown. Thanks

Can also be more "yellow". Carmel is a normal call. Not to worry. CJR
