    Maxie's crop surgery turned out well, she returned to her friends (not without some bullying) and has gained some weight! She looks good. THanks to all of you for your educational posts and answers to questions.

    However, she is still having water poops. There may be a little bit of solids to them, they are hard to find in the litter, but I hear a watery squoosh and see liquid fall. It's green chicken poop colored, as some went on the wall of their pen.

    Is this going to be ok in the long run? Any ideas why the water poops?

    Have you wormed her with Safeguard for five days or with Valbazen?

    Also, is it hot where you are?

    It's Summer here, and my girls will automatically drink more (and hence do more watery poops) purely because of the extra water they are drinking.
