Chickens have diarrhea

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Any ideas on why they would and what I should do to get them bette . The Silkie had a sour crop last Sunday and I did get her better. She had watery stool, so just attributed it to the sour crop. Now the Polish also has runny stool.

Any help is much appreciated!

It could be a couple dozen things. Best approach is to have a fecal sample read for parasites, bacteria and viruses.

Thanks for helping. It is so watery I don't even know if I could get a sample.

Scrape up what you can.

If you want to keep it simple, just have a simple fecal evaluation at your vet.  They know the basic parasites.  Use a plastic knife to scrape as much as you can into a ziplock bag; if possible get 3-4 different birds' droppings, pool the sample, then submit for a fecal.
