    I bought some chick hens about 8 weeks ago. They are showing signs of loose stools. What to do?

    They can be a little 'boopie' [​IMG] and I wouldn't worry about it too much unless there are other symptoms.

    You might want to give them a splash of some gatorade in water and keep them hydrated. Make sure they have a clean coop, water and food. Watch out for the heat.

    Just to check, you have them on a starter feed and not cracked corn or scratch feed or something like this?

    I moved my hen up too soon and she pooped everywhere!
