I am probably worrying needlessly . . .

when they go in the indoor run I put down white training pads for them. Usually the urine dries a yellow colour, but sometimes it is more orangey-red (I don't think there is blood present). Is this normal - is it just what they eat?

this often happens with my lot, especially after they have been eating carrot.

Also sometimes there can be a red pigment in their urine and quite a lot of people mistake that for blood, when it's harmless.

Thanks Kelly! I could see it wasn't blood, but did wonder if it was OK. I guess it is carrots and strawberries!
