    I'm a first year chicken owner so this is my first experience with hot weather and chickens. It's been pretty hot here (for us) the past several days and my hens have been drinking water like crazy. I have noticed that a couple of them are doing exorcist style watery poos. I suspect it's because they've had so much water from the heat but would like the opinion of experienced chicken keepers. They are otherwise eating and doing normal chicken stuff. It's much cooler today, should I just keep an eye on them? Thanks!
