I have been feeding my chickens bread that we weren't eating. It was a sweet, dark, whole grain bread. I have noticed some chickens having a pale colored diarrhea.
I have never seen this before and I haven't changed anything in their diet or introduced new chickens. Just been feeding them bread.

If it was sweetened with molasses then there is your problem.
Too much molasses can give most any livestock diarrhea if given too much at one time.
