    Now that my hens are starting to really lay alot of eggs most of them have brown diarrhea. I would notice this diarrhea once and a while but to no concern. Now most of them seem to have it. They have been laying for about 2-3 weeks now. Any feedback will be most helpful.

    Does it happen all the time? Or is it intermittent with normal droppings throughout the day?

    My first thought is cecal poop which is normal. Could it be that?

    shakecc in her/his post, loose stool ?, had almost the same question.

    Search for cecal; cecum; caecal or caecum on the forum to decide for sure.

    Hope that is all it is and everything is okay.
