    Nowhere near enough information. What are you feeding them? How are they housed? Check out the questions in the sticky at the beginning of this section.

    You still need to go to the sticky up top and look at the questions to give more background, for example how old the birds are any recent changes.

    Even healthy chickens have liquid cicel poops a few times a day.

    Other things to look at are cocci and worms that commonly cause poop problems but typically show other symptoms as thing progress.
