    Hello, I have two white leghorn chickens. Crystal is 4 years old and Opal is 5 months old. When they are in their run they do the expected poops, but when they are roaming outside they do runny poops. Does anyone have any idea what is going on? They are laying normal, acting normal, their feeding habits are as expected.

    I was just reading in my chicken health care book about poops and urine last evening and it said that there are all kind of variations on normal, one of which is poops where there is more urine excreted that what you usually see. This happens when the chickens have been eating especially fleshy/juicy greens and also when it's hot out and they drink more water than usual.
