    I walked out to feed the girls one day when I noticed a solitary patch of mud-covered burger...and it was smelly. It was diarreah. Any advice on how to get rid of the sickness?

    how long have they had diarrhea?

    sometimes chickens will have a very splashy poop but then the next day its normal... there was a wonderful link someone posted and it was all about chicken poop and the range of normal... i will see if i can find it and post the link

    Poop consistency can vary from day to day per individual flock member. If it continues day to day and spreads to others then you should be concerned.
    Some variations that could cause inconsistencies:
    Change in diet
    Change in weather
    Change in location of flock
    Predator issues causing stress

    If this continues please post details.
