    My EE has had "Diaherra [​IMG] since we got her in April. she is over a year old. HOused with my 4 other birds; and they don't have the same problem she does. They all free-range; eat the same food but her poop shoot sounds likke a gush when it should be a plop. [​IMG]

    Ok, I know this is weird, but could you describe what it looks like, maybe post a picture?

    Liquidy droppings are sometimes caused by stress. I took one of my hens to the vet over her sudden liquid droppings, and learned it was stress related (she was in the beginning stages of fowl pox, and was getting picked on by the other birds).

    You got this new bird in April. How is she settling into the flock? Any pecking order problems? Is she moulting? How's her laying?

    I think she is the lowest on the pecking order. She is laying good. she is not molting or being pecked by the other 4. She was with them all her life I believe. Hahaha a picture of the poo. I will try getting one today

    Clear? Kind of thickish and mucousy? If so, that's likely a stress dropping.
