    I noticed one chicken staying to herself and her backside has diaherra, I added ACV to her water with some garlic and gave her some flax seeds. Anything else?

    Thanks so much

    How old is she, and how long have you had her. Have you added new chickens recently? Has she been wormed? Probiotics or a little buttermilk 2-3 times a week may help with diarrhea. Is she having diarrhea with every stool? Coccidiosis can be a problem if they is lethargy, puffing up, poor appetite, and diarrhea. Corid or amprollium would be needed for that. Natural remedies are fine, but when it comes to worms and coccidiosis, a medication may save her life.
