    Have you wormed your hens lately?

    Probably would be a good idea to worm them, then. I would choose Safeguard or Valbazen.

    Ok I talk to the lady I got them from just now and she said it could just be from what they ate since I feed them scraps and leftovers might have upset there stomach she was in a meeting so she will call me back.

    When she calls you back, be sure to ask her when she wormed them last, and what she used.

    Have you fed them anything high in sodium? It can cause dropping just like this. It would be a good idea to cut out all scraps and treats to see if they go back to normal.
