    Welcome to BYC! and I'm sure its normal and I think they have that kind of droppings because they're hot. I will try to find the post where I read it and post the link here [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Hi and welcome to BYC! Yes, it's called cecal poop. Chickens have runny poop every 8-10 poo's. On hot days, my chicks have more runny poo then normal.
