Blue Poop

If you feed your hens purple cabbage, they will thank you with turquoise colored poop.  It even stained the pine shavings in the coop as they were eating it before bed last night.  Blueberries will also give them blue poop.

It's a good reminder that what they eat really flows right through them.  And into their eggs as well.

  1. I give my girls some spinach each morning and am often rewarded with some green poops. Occasionally I give them tomatoes and that produces rusty coloured poops. It's definitely a case of "they are what they eat". Daily greens keep the egg yolks a lovely colour too.
