    I think one of my chickens has diarrhea. This morning in the roost I noticed some brownish reddish looking liquidy poop. Everyone jumped right out of the roost and started eating and drinking and flying around. Then just now I found what I think is diarrhea. They still seem to be acting fine and I'm not sure who did it. They caught a mouse yesterday and I've been worried they would get sick. Please tell me this is a normal poop! It's waterier looking in person than it looks in the photo. They are RIR hens. Will be 23 weeks old on Wednesday. 2 of them are laying but so far have only gotten 1 egg today.

    Chicken droppings can range widely. I would watch them over the next day or so to see if it continues and which bird it is.
