    We just went from 20% protein to 15% a few days ago. I cannot believe I didn't change the crew over gradually...I just went from one food to the other.

    Now my guys have watery poop plops that are a muddy brown. Could the food change have caused this? Should I add some of the 20% now or is it too late?

    It's always a good idea to wean onto new foods, but a little watery poop won't hurt them, I don't think! You're okay - if that's the worst chicken-related "whoops" you have, you're one lucky bird person! [​IMG]
