    This is my barred rocks poop. Not at all like my other broody Americana poop. What should I do? Do you think she isn't eating? I switched her from layer pellets to non medicated grower crumble. It has been raining a lot and the temps have been mid 30's at night and 50's- high 60's during the day.

    Your title is, "Broody Problem?" Is your hen broody? Sometimes their poo can look funny, and be very large, since they're holding it ALL DAY.

    Hope this helps!

    Yes she is broody. I was worried because it is so watery. I know chickens can get watery poop if they aren't eating. I think that might be the problem. I don't know how to make her eat :-/

    Don't try to force her to eat!

    This was written by Beekissed on another thread. I think it might help you.

    I don't think its possible to force a chicken to eat. I meant entice her to eat. The post was very helpful, thank you!
