    is she the only one?

    you may want to cut back on the worms for a few days and see if that changes her poo....to many treats will give them the runs

    Hi there,
    Are they earthworms that you give her? They can give a hen roundworms.
    You should look carefully to see if you can observe any roundworms in her feces.

    Has she had runny poo for a long time, or just for one day? Veggies can give a hen the runs.

    How is she otherwise? Is she eating and drinking well?
