    One of my two chickens has diarhea all the time. She eats well, is active and lays eggs. She wanders the yard all day and has access to food and water all day. She is under a year old. My other chicken never has diarhea. It is so messy and I want to help her. Suggestions? Also, does anyone know how to get sticky chicken diarhea off the patio.[​IMG]

    I've used both oxyclean and dawn direct to get stubborn chicken poo off the the patio. On the diarrhea front, can you describe the poop better? Is it just water? Foamy?

    Sometimes it is sticky brown and sometimes it is more wattery with chunks in it. It is nothing like my other chickens solid pile. It has been going on a long time. We aren't eating her eggs because of it. She otherwise seems perfectly fine.

    Try feeding her some yogurt.
    Some foods high in fiber might help.
