So I've recently noticed that all of my bigger flock is pooping extremely watery/clear poops. They're all acting perfectly normal though and I don't see anything else wrong with them The two that are laying are laying normally too. They're all 5 months old btw

The poops are usually completely clear like someone sprayed water on the ground but sometimes they look like this.

There is some fecal material in there, but chickens in hot weather may drink a lot more water which can in turn, make the droppings watery. You can give them some probiotics a couple of times a week, and try a little cottage cheese in their feed to help firm up droppings. Cooked rice (never uncooked) with buttermilk is another food that may firm up stools, but just give a small amount to each chicken. Those have probiotics as well. If you are concerned about worms or coccidiosis, try to get some droppings checked by a vet.

It might be the heat. It's been pretty hot here recently. I might put some cottage cheese in there though. Thank you
