    I have 5 chickens, they are about 20 weeks old. One has really watery poops. Any ideas on what may be wrong?[​IMG][​IMG]

    Am quite relieved to find this post! Can I ask... were the poos smelly? And what happened? Did anything change? Any recommendations?

    1 of my young chickens died on Monday and I'm keeping a very close eye now on my other 3.

    2 of them (which are the same age) seem very subdued, but our older chicken is fine. They're all eating,drinking and poo-ing. I'm hoping they're just missing their friend, as they were quite literally inseperable (!) But I've been getting worried about my remaining 2 young-uns who started pooing water with solid poo, and it stinks! It's not very hot outside, so I'm hoping it's nothing serious. I really don't want another one to die :'-(
