    I have cornish x white rocks and they are now 1 month old. They poop like crazy and Im starting to think its not normal. I need to change their litter almost daily now and they have diarreha non stop. Is this normal? I have never raised these birds before. Also they have always pooped like this but as they get older its more and more. I understand the poop amount should be more than others since they eat sooooo much but Im not sure if there is an illness I should be looking at.

    I am new to meat birds, and ours are about five weeks old. They go all the time and it is soft, but not like diarrhea. Maybe you can try posting on the emergencies/diseases section to try to get some advice.

    What are you feeding them? Perhaps that is what is causing the diarrhea.

    I am feeding them a broiler grower. I was told this was okay but maybe it is the food....
