    I had one of my RIR's with diarhea. I was feeding lots of greens and some yogurt, banana for treat, pomegranate, apple. I stopped with the extras for awhile and gave only scratch, 17% laying mash, sunflower and niger seeds and water. It seemed to clear up a bit and now, she has it again and has been losing weight. Another chicken now has it. One has watery green and the other (the thinner one) has white runny. Help.[​IMG]

    Okay, it appears the poop is okay. I am going to reintroduce some of the treats that they all like and see if she starts to gain weight. I got her at 1-1/2years old and she has always been a bit off. The temperature was about 10 degrees celcius so I turned it down to about 4 and they got a bit of fresh air today, although they didn't like the snow too much. Spoiled? Mmmmm maybe. Anyway, thanks for the help, I'll keep you updated.
