    Chickens eat worms all the time, so they'll probably be fine. If you are really worried about it, or it doesn't stop, try cooking them up some oatmeal for a treat. They like it, and it will generally help with the consistency of their poop.

    Do a search for the "poop chart". Strangely enough there is a wide range of poop that is normal. I find that watermelon, lots of greens, or even the heat can give them some runny poop.
