    Is it runny? It could possibly be the pigeons or, like chickencanoe said maybe the greenery not all the chickens would have the same reaction to grass etc just like humans.

    Usually when a chicken has worms they wont lay, have a pale comb, runny poop and would start to loose weight and not eat as much

    This is true when there's a worm infestation, caused by worm excrement in the chickens innards. Sometimes green poop can be "pre-infestation" so to speak. It can be a sign of an onset of ecoli infection as well as other problems.
    Jefff120; since you've recently wormed your birds and they are acting normal, just observe them for anything else out of the ordinary. Are you feeding them layer feed?
