    Hi! I've been searching the forum this morning, but I am still not sure if I need to worry about my chicken! She is having watery, black stools. I even saw one kind of "shoot" out. She is about 4 months old, free ranges in our (urban) backyard. She also gets organic grower and occasional scratch. I did recently take the netting off the garden, so they have been enjoying more greens lately. I have four chickens, so I can't be sure all these poops are hers.

    I haven't seen any blood, and I checked that British site with normal and abnormal poop pics, and none seemed quite right...

    Could this just be due to the diet change, or should I worry?

    Thanks so much for any advice!

    could be a diet change, mine would have all kinds of funky poo depending on what i gave them but then it would return to normal, just make sure there aren't any worms in it [​IMG]
