Lightbulb Red wag platy giving birth, orange poop?

i woke up this morning to find a baby platy swimming in my tank so i put it and the mother in my breeding tank which is a 2 way, i got home from work tonight there in the breeding tank there is a lot of orange poop, is this a sign she has ate some/all the babies? she did just have a white almost transparent poop tonight so shes still not finished? i have read they can take up to 3 days to deliver, how long does it take between each fry?

Colored excrement doesn't mean she ate the babies. Chances are it's just her normal food that turned it that color. I've got the entire rainbow from my flake food before, lol.
I wonder why tough corals are called hammers, and weak corals are called buttons...
