    My 4 chicks are now 7 wks old. I have 2 LF and 2 bantams. At first I thought it was only one of the LFs that was dropping the very loose poop. She's at the bottom of the pecking order and gets picked on the most by the dominate one. I rationalized that it was from fear she was doing this. But I saw that the dominate LF does it too. I've been feeding them chick starter, chick grit, and rolled oats. What could be causing the very wet droppings?

    Mine did the same thing but it wasn't every poop just once in a few poops. ha ha someone told me that they cleanse their colon, sort of speak, and will have that runny yellowy smelly poop once in a while. They are now 8 weeks old and don't seem to be doing it as much.

    just an fyi in addition to the poop link. Chickens don't pee, so when they pass fluid they do so in their poo
