    I went to feed my chickens just now and I noticed a big pile of diarrhea on the floor. Doesnt diarrhea in chickens mean bird flu? I dont know which one of my chickens has it or if it is certainly bird flu but Im really worried now. Advice?? Please?

    Our chickens have once in a while had watery/diarrhea poop before and they're fine. [​IMG] The only thing I would worry about is if the diarrhea had worms or blood in it.

    Hope someone else knows more about it!

    If you do a search for diarrhea you will find LOTS on info. Most likely it not bird flu.

    There are so many possible causes that I can't possibly type them all up for you. I always recommend doing a search first, so you can narrow down the questions, and also following the guidelines in this area to give as much information as possible when asking for help. Always read the stickies before posting!
