Don't worry, they eat so much that it goes though pretty quick and comes out big ploppy sloppy and stinky. If they are still under 24/7 lighting, see if you can't either feed 12 on 12 off, or go by natural day light to prevent flip (death).

Maybe they arent used to it quite yet. And the chickens are the ones making noises the poop coming out it making a wet sound right?

Quote:What my meat chickens poop looks a lot like what they just ate. It's definitely wetter and sloppier than my layer hens. I don't know why that is, but they've always been that way (I've done several batches), so I wouldn't be very concerned unless they develop other problems as well.
