    Daisy is on day 149 and may kid today. She has had odd poop since like Sat. or Sun. It is not diarhea, but is like a HUGE about of ''pebbles'' all squished together to make a ball. It has a little bit of grain in it, and is a little smellier than usual. Is this something to be concerned about? Is it just that the birth canal is getting more dialated, so the poop canal is getting small and squishing all the poop together? Help!! :question:

    All of my girls do this before kidding. Usually for about a week before, they get some form of abnormal poop. Ive had berries all stuck together, dog poop, to very soft (but not yet diarrehea). I wouldnt worry about it unless it continues for a while after kidding.

    When she is ready to go, if anything like my girls, she'll "clean out" meaning continuous pooping! They need to empty the intestine so theres more roon in the birth canal and after birth mine get a "cow patty" type first poo then back to normal in a few hours.
