An important part of chicken care is recognizing when one of your residents is not feeling well and knowing how to respond. However, if you don’t know what a healthy chicken should generally look like, it will be harder to identify when something is amiss. While all chickens are unique individuals, there are some general characteristics that most healthy chickens will present. However, getting to know the individuals in your care is equally, if not more, important than just knowing what is generally considered “normal.”
In addition to knowing what a healthy chicken typically looks like, it’s important to know what their droppings should look like.
