    My hen passes dark watery unpleasant smelling motions eary in the day, these change as the day goes on to firmer "normal" looking motions we have noticed this as she now spends so much more time with us inside with the arrival of a severe winter, is this unusual ??

    Quote:Hi! Sounds like what you are seeing is normal... as long as it is not constant. It is what the call cecal stool. It happens every 8 or so movements. As long as she is eating and drinking and acting normal otherwise I am sur she will be fine. [​IMG]
