    is the poo page so you can see if the poo is abnormal
    diarrhea vs. caecal poo

    Does she have diarrhea?

    Do you think she is just overheated?

    I have read about others on BYC giving their chickens gatorade.

    Sorry I cannot be of more assistance.

    at 11 weeks I bet that kind of heat could be making her sick, it would to me. give them some cool water, a fan in the coop, watermelon
