Hello! This is my first time posting here, so please forgive me if I make any mistakes.
This might be a bit TMI so please do not read this if you get grossed out by scat.

Today one of my roaches defecated a very orange piece of scat. When I picked it up to clean up it was very mushy [sorry TMI]. I'm really concerned there's something wrong with it because it's never done this before. Does anyone know if it could possibly be a dietary issue or if maybe it's sick? [I fed it romaine lettuce the other day, the day before was lettuce and tomato]. And also if I can tell their health from the color of their poop? Thank you!

Well their diet sounds nice and balanced, don't know why the frass is runny and orange.
My guess is that's what can happen after feeding them tomatoes, it's probably nothing to worry about. :)
