Anyone notice diarrhea before revving up for egg laying?

    I've noticed that my hens tend to get diarrhea for awhile before they start up their egg-laying early in the year. Have you noticed that too?

    not really. Notice this when it has been really wet out side they tend to have really runny poop sometimes it looks like water.

    Yes,I have noticed this. I was just looking this up on the internet. My Nankin hen just started laying last week (every few days) and notice she has loose poop. She has only laid three eggs and there is always a day in between. It is better the day after she lays an egg.
