New Bird with diarrhoea!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Hi guys, I'm new to keeping Chickens & this is my 1st post. 

 

We bought 3 Chickens just over 2 weeks ago now, they have settled in very well and are more than friendly! Unfortunately one of the birds has had diarrhoea since the day we got her. I have given her probiotic drinks but this doesnt seem to of made any difference. She is a lively bird but I wonder if anyone has any ideas? I have just bought some worming Flubenvent so will try that but any help would be great :)

 

She is the Black Hen in the video :)

Poop comes in all shapes and sizes! Here is a chart (hope you're not eating your breakfast!) with a range of normal and abnormal droppings that you can compare with what your hen is producing. She certainly doesn't look sick!

Count the campfires by glowing flames, never by the ashes that fall. Count your days by the golden hours, don't remember clouds at all. Count the nights by stars, not by shadows. Count your life by smiles, not by tears. And with joy on every birthday, count your age by friends-not years.

Thank you for that, it is a great help! None of the pictures are exactly the same but it it has made me feel better as they fit closer to normal than abnormal :)

Worms can be a cause of diarrhea, the flubenvet will take care of them. Feeding them treats most of the time can be a cause as well, make sure their diet is layer feed and not scratch. They are good looking birds.
