I have a one year old australorp, Omelet, who developed nasty diarrhea last week. Several times a day her innards rumble loudly and then she blows out these huge gobs of runny poop - if you hold your hand with your fingers spread out in a star, that's how big they are. They're mostly watery-mucousy with some solid bits mixed in there, but definitely way runnier than normal. Her symptoms are: she's got less energy but she isn't listless she isn't laying eggs her comb and wattle seem of normal colour she's eating and drinking normally she seems alert and interactive I have not noticed any blood or visible-to-the-eye parasites in the poop She's a free-range hen on our organic farm, and she's fed organic feed and scratch. I've been giving her raw organic yogurt, bits of banana and cheese, an organic herbal tea made from plantain, marsh mallow, lemon balm, echinacea (I can never spell that), slippery elm bark, and chamomile. Nothing seems to be helping, but she loves all this food. She's always gotten treats every day, so this is nothing new (meaning that's highly unlikely to be causing stomach upset). We did get a batch of new chicks in mid July, but that's now 5 weeks ago and none of the other hens, or the chicks, is sick. What should I do? Epsom salts? Vinegar in the water? Wait it out? Any thoughts to the cause? At first I thought it was the heat - I'd noticed she had a messy bum and she almost collapsed on a very hot day, so I gave her a lukewarm bath and she perked up, but is now in this perpetual state of rumble-tummy/blowouts. It's been a full week. Should I try different herbs in the tea maybe? We love all our chickens dearly and we're at our wit's end trying to get Omelet back to normal. Thanks.
