    My friend has a chicken with runny poo. she describes it as so: "she had very very funny poop and its white with some green in it. Its so runny it just clogs up her butt feathers. She hasn't laid an egg since I found out about this." I'm not sure what breed it is but she is a full grown chicken. This started recently, i think. and it's just one chicken.
     
  2. sounds like vent gleet. If she puts apple cider vinegar (ACV) at rate of 2 - 4 Tbs. per gallon in the water, this should help. Some chickens just have poop that sticks on them. My old Delaware hen's like this, and the ACV clears her up every time. Must be something unbalanced in the digestive system.
