What would cause this????? The girls are only like 12 wks old! Thank you!
The range of "normal" chicken poo is quite wide. The white from their droppings is from the uric acid and is normal. The loose consistency can be due to a number of factors such as worms. However, in the summer time, the most common cause is heat. The birds will use loose droppings as a way to expel excess heat. I would keep an eye on them and if their appetite and appearance is normal and you don't see any worms in their droppings, then they'll be fine. I wouldn't be alarmed unless this persisted for a number of days or a week.
