    I have a black Ameraucana that has a white diarreaha looking stuff continuesly coming out. It has a rotten egg smell as well. I have bathed the bird several times trying to clean her up. I have watched her produce a normal stool. Can't figure out whats going on. She is still eating and drinking. Thought it might be an egg bound hen but not sure. Any help from the group. Just an FYI the flock was attacked by a couple of dogs and 6 friends were killed. Have not gotten an egg from the rest of the flock since. Will they lay again.

    Historically, a disease called bacillary white diarrhea (Salmonella pullorum) caused severe mortality in the chicken industry years ago. Pollorum is not common any more but it cannot be otally discounted. Call your state diagnostic laboratory. If it is pullorum they will want to know. Basically a culture and sensitivity of the feces is in order.
