    The white is urates or chicken urine, and it is watery which may be do to drinking lots of water. Worms could be a possibility. There are some similar droppings with explanations on this link: http://chat.allotment.org/index.php?topic=17568.0

    Thanks , i really hope its not worms :( they live in a clean back garden and i let them free range all day. If it is worms would i be able to heal it without providing medicine.

    Dear Chickenman786

    Please let us know the
    a) weather conditions in your area?
    b) Are these droppings from male or female?
    c) When was the last time you wormed your chickens?
    d) Any signs of respiratory stress?

    This could be worms, Kidney infection or a respiratory problem.

    There are worms in the soil. Chickens will always have a few worms no matter how clean your environment is. Taking a collective sample to the vet might give you answers. Valbazen and Safegard goat wormer are excellent wormers.
