    I've looked at the poop chart and I still can't figure it out: my chicken is making flatulant noises and shooting a a very awful smelling, watery poop. I don't see any worms in it. Sometimes the poo is normal but often it's this watery stinky mess. Any insight, please?

    I know some feeds produce smellier poo. That's why I stick to Purina.

    It might be something that she's eaten, but I'm not sure exactly what it could be. Is she always like this? It might just be something about her; maybe her digestive system is a bit abnormal. I'd give her some probiotics and see if that makes a difference.

    Worms can cause liquidy, smelly droppings too. Even if you don't see worms in the droppings, she might still have them. I think that you should deworm, just be be sure. Get some Valbazen or Safeguard dewormers, as they are good broad spectrum wormers. You can also use the Worminator, which is another dewormer. I use it, and its works fine for me.
