My sweet chickens turned 6 months old Febuary 13,2012. They are not yet laying eggs. I am not really in any hurry for them to. But I thought I would start them on Laying Pellets. The fellow at the feed store said that most people go with those. I had been feeding them only scratch and kitchen scraps. So I go out there today to change out their bedding and visit. They have all got diarrhea so bad. They dont appear to be "drained" or sickly just runny poops everywhere. Yesterday was their first day on the new food. It has been raining seems like everyday so I havent notice anything different till today. Hopefully this is just a food change. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
