OK so just saw some 'normal' poo photos and apparently they shed their intestinal linings and I think that is what the reddy coloured stuff is going off other photos. It is a bit watery - usually from being too hot (not a problem :giggle: ) or not eating enough. The dumbos have been knocking over their feeder every morning when I go out so they may actually not be getting as much food as they should perhaps. Am going to go and buy the parts I have to make a PVC pipe feeder that they can't knock over! Am going to try not to :panic: that there is something wrong and just keep an eye on them!

Our feeder is hung up because we had that problem. I'll see if I can get a picture for you. I'd keep an eye on the poop but don't panic too much!

Thanks Christit - I may well try that when I get thier proper run / coop done. I have also bought all the bits to make a PVC pipe feeder so I'll try that too.

What do you have on your floor - just dirt? @autumnalgirl I think I'm going to try to do the deep litter method to make compost in situ!
