Milky poop

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have 4 ex battery hens , and one has had milky poop for a long time, she is fine in her self eating drinking , I lost 2 hens a few months ago from a badly designed feeder, where water had got in and made the bottom layer of food mouldy, but these 2 hens died very quick with no signs of illness, but this hen has been left with this milky poop, not sure if it could be connected ! Iv been given her life guard , and Iv also put some feed grade of DE down, all I and think of she might have liver disease, if this is the case can anything be done for her.

If she continues to have this milky discharge then you should take her to the vet as she might have a internal parasite. Not eating enough can also cause milky white stools. Check for bugs on her or any signs of internal parasites. It might also be a health problem.

I found a 'poop chart' to help compare her stools to what's normal/healthy and what's not.

I found the picture of what her poop looks like and it could be kidney problems, but saying that I put some multi-mite special grade DE powder down and there was no sign of milky poop this morning and her feathers where clean, I will just keep a eye on her. But thank you for the reply.

You should take her to the vet soon as kidney problems could eventually be fatal. Keep an eye on her for the time being.
