Chickens have diarrhea ----- HELP

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 

Two of my buff's have watery diarrhea.They are eating, drinking & are healthy. Is there something I should be giving them ?? There are no worms in their watery poop.
  Second question. Two of my bannies are bald, well almost.None of my other hens or the roosters pick at them. They just lost their feathers. It's sad & I worry about them getting sunburned when they are out. Any suggestions on what I can do to get their feathers back on, besides glue "just kidding smile"

                                         Thank You

I'm totally new to this, so take whatever I say with a grain of salt! I was worried about one of my hens having watery poop too. This was during an unusually hot time here. I read that they sometimes poop out water in hot weather so that they can take in more cool water and bring down their body temp. Anyway, I don't know if it's overly hot where you are, or if that could be the explanation (or if it's even true since I read it who-knows-where online, lol). I hope your hens are ok!

ok, i would suggest getting plain yogurt and give it to them. It helps regulate that. I sprinkle feed lightly on top or put freah fruit. Stand back , they make a mess lau
As long as the poo has no blood you'll be OK! Other colors do indicate thing but for now focus on that. What color is the poo?

2nd, chickens molt. It's probally what happened. Give them a shaded area and they will be OK

Could be perfectly normal.
I'll attach a link to lots of pix of poop.

Thanks for your info. It is hot here in Oklahoma. Imp, the info was interesting. The poop pictures were gross, but I did appriciate the site. I guess since I raise quarter horse's & have seen all kinds of poop, I don't get to grossed out  wink    I will watch the hens closely.
  I feel bad for my bald peeps  sad   The one black one looks like it's had chemotherapy  sad
  Thanks again you guys. I appriciate you.

I missed your second question. Lol
If they are not being picked on, probably a molt.
Here's another link.

We are just one big happy family of Americana hens, roosters, peacocks, horses, donkeys, goats, and cats, and we are just loving every minute of it.

Found this thread on a search after I went to feed my hens this morning.  It appeared that one of them had diarrhea, but after looking at the picture link, I now know she is fine.  Thanks!
