    One of my girls, a barred rock, has started having very watery poops with no white. Is this what diarrhea looks like in chickens? Could I have a problem? She is very healthy looking, eating well.

    Have you wormed your chickens? If you have, what did you use?

    No, the only thing different is we have started letting them free range the yard. They just started laying last month. We are all organic, so there are no pesticides or other chemicals they may have gotten into.

    Been off line for a couple of days, I have not noticed any more of this and she seems fine. Eating very well. I am wondering if it was all the stuff she was eating her first few days running the yard?
