Hello all,

I've noticed the last few days there is some runnier poop. I had bought the same feed but from a different breeder that had a richer formula. They are back eating their regular feed now. Could the change in feed cause that. I also introduced some oats as a treat from time to time. Just wondering what could be causing the change in their poop.

How runny is "runnier"? It's normal for chickens to have a wide range of poops, in all shapes, sizes, and colors. The change of feed may have contributed, or something else may be the cause. What color was it? And where? Did it seem to be from several chickens or just one? Was it thin and watery? Foamy? Just a little slimy?

Sorry not really runny, more softer in a blob, same color, same place, no foam or water, maybe 9 out of 11 chickens pooping this way. I'm still seeing firmer ones too. Its more softer than whole. No slime. But I will watch for all these things. Thanks for your response.

Can you post some pictures of the poop?
