    I recently bought a different brand of food. Pellets are much larger than the other food. One chicken has green diahreah and the other does not, but both chickens poop looks like broken down, yet undigested food and pieces if grass. Is it the pellets? I've given them both yogurt which seemed to help temporarily, then when I gave them pellets one was sick again. I am also concerned that they sometimes peck at dog poop and one dog is on antibiotics. I try to keep it picked up.

    I suggest you feel their crops in the morning to see if they emptied because I have a chicken with impacted crop and that is how her poop is.

    I will check crops tomorrow. I gave yogurt yesterday and switched them back to crumbles. They seem better today. Poop isn't watery any more but still looks like undigested grain.
