    I have a 24 week old black sex link chicken who seemed fine this morning and then around 4pm I found her laying in a water puddle in the garden with yellow poo around her. I took pics of her poo and would appreciate any suggestions. She is drinking a lot but won't eat the food or scratch only a tomato that I gave her. She went back into the coop tonight and is on the roost with the others.

    Hi MindyNE

    Your hen is doing that due to lack of FOOD. Try handfeeding her. The poo has no shape because there ain't solids in there!
