    I bought a young buff leghorn pullet and a polish at a local poultry show recently. They are being quarintined in our kitchen. Lately, gertrude (buff leghorn) has had some diarrhea--very loose and watery, light brown, nasty looking. What can I do to stop this? I gave her some apple cider vinegar and garlic. What else would help?

    Are you sure it's diarrhea-----chicken poop can be runny at times. Unless it has a really foul odor, I don't think I'd be concerned.

    Maybe you could give her some banana or cooked rice----works for other animals.
