    One of my hens, that I got 2 weeks ago, has been having brown diarrhea like poo. Is it sick? They all appear to look fine except for mild molting.
    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Here is the famous Poop chart...it will show you the wide range of normal poops and what to look for in abnormal ones too
    http://www.chat.allotment.org.uk/index.php?topic=17568.0

    has it been hot where you are? if so it could be the increase in water intake, this will make it more runny.
    it could also be that you do not see all the normal poops and only seeing what is called "Ceacal" poop which is passed every 6-10 poops.
    So check the chart out an if you are still worried, let us know [​IMG]


    Best Wishes,
