Hello

After loosing Esmae recently I am very vigilant.

Mrytle has begun to pass black droppings. I think this is normal but am keen to hear from others more experienced in this area.

Should this be of concern ?

Thanks, Chicken-Gal

Has she been eating anything dark coloured? Access to dark berries or similar? That poo is fairly dark but otherwise looks totally normal. I wouldn’t immediately worry on seeing that. In fact I probably wouldn’t think twice if I saw it in my yard. Just keep a general eye on Myrtle for now.

Thanks Rach. I am being over-cautious, Chicken- Gal
