    My almost 2 year old RIR hens have been molting for the past few weeks but have watery stools too...I've inspected the poop and there is no sign of worms or anything like that. They are both eating and drinking normally so I'm not sure what the cause of the watery stools could be. Could it be caused by the molting? Any advice would be appreciated...thanks in advance

    Give them buttermilk with scrambled egg mixed in their feed for several days. Hopefully you'll see improvement soon.
