    The chickens that is, not me. I noticed some runny poop around the vent area on one of my chickens. She is a laying hen, little under a year. They have started foraging again and there is green grass and bugs and what not that they have not had for awhile. I did a search on here and think that it might just be a change of diet thing. I was wondering if was normal for this to happen during the spring. I know when horses first get some new grass their stools loosen a bit, is it the same for chickens? I gave them some yogurt and was going to give them some rice, oatmeal, and egg tomorrow.
