    Several possibilities

    Ate many peas or greens
    Infection
    Hardware disease

    Can you upload a photo?

    Any other symptoms?

    She shared a softball sized lettuce with the hens but I'm not sure how much she got. No other symptoms, she's completely normal other than that.

    *panic* *sweat* I'm probably freaking out over nothing again. Goodness she's probably going to stay inside with me today so I can watch her. \•o•/

    I would not panic on that one, and at the same time, won't hurt to watch what she's eating and if she behaves well, and poo returns to its more regular appearance I would not worry.

    Good that you are watching. I have read, by the way, that cilantro chelates metals - just a tidbit that may or may not be helpful in the case of hardware disease (swallowing metal).

    Just keep an eye on her. The lettuce could very well be the factor. Is she otherwise acting normally? If she keeps doing it 12 hours from now when the lettuce is long out of her system, then let us know. Give her lotsa love for us!

    Quacks is doing good so far! She didn't want to stay inside for very long, (It's a very pretty day.) so I let her back out and she ate a bit and is now taking a bath. Thanks for all the help! I'd probably have millions of dollars of vet bills if I didn't have BYC!
