    Hi my chickens are both brooding of that relevant but their poos have been really liquid. All I feed them is water, laying pellets, grit, treats(oats mainly) and corn on the cob! Am I missing something from their diet, why is their poo so liquid? Does this mean something else is wrong?

    It may help giving them oyster shells. Where do you keep them?

    BYC has a "poop chart" to help diagnosis various problems. I think if you put "poop chart" in the search box it will come up. I know, it's icky but someone has to deal with it.

    That looks fairly normal to me. They are probably just drinking more water because it's summer.
