    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Many times undigested food in the poop can be from worms. Have you wormed your flock recently? And impaction or crop problems can also cause watery poop with undigested material in it.

    You might post this question in our emergency section for more help with your bird...https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/10/emergencies-diseases-injuries-and-cures

    Good luck and I hope you can get your bird back to good health soon!

    Thank you all for the responses. As for now i can't tell which one might have a problem. They are all eating and drinking. I will monitor them closely and see if i can feel for a distended crop.

    Sometimes chickens just have really odd poops. If it continues then something is probably wrong.
