    My Kennie is 1.5 years old. She started getting more tired, more sleepy and less active about 4 days ago. Attached is a picture of her poop. Clear liquid and chunky matter. I took this picture about 3 minutes after it sprayed out of her backside. I have been giving her garlic and tomatoes along with her feed. She is still eating and drinking, which is good but she is just not well. Any ideas? Thank you for your ideas...[​IMG]

    I think she needs dewormed.

    I would de-worm with Safeguard and treat for coccidiosis with Corid.

    X3. You could also treat with Valbazen, or the product that I use, called the Worminator (http://www.twincitypoultrysupplies.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=584). It contains the active ingredient Flubenvet, I believe. I've used it, and it has worked well.

    Of course, one reason for the loose, watery droppings is that it probably rather hot out. Chickens drink a lot more water in the heat, and their droppings become runnier because of it.

    Either of those wormers would be fine, but it's been my experience that chickens go downhill very fast, so I would get whatever is at the feed store instead of ordering somthing online. Then if you don't see improvement, you can look at other options. Do not let the feed store sell you Wazine, it only gets round worms.

    We did get dewormer. She is still doing her chicken thing. How long do we give the dewormer? A week? Thank you.

    I also had 1 chick with same poop. I looked it up here on BYC and a link posted shows pictures of poop and its in the normal rangers. Chicken is too hot drinking more or not eating enough. :
