    Can you post a picture of the poops? :)

    It could be Coccidiosis, which can be treated with Corid. You can get it at Tractor Supply, your local feed store, or order it online.

    That *could* be intestinal shedding... But I would run a round of Corid through your flock's water just to be on the safe side.

    Dosage:

    1.5 teaspoons (NO LESS) of the 20% powder per gallon of water
    OR
    2 teaspoons of the 9.6% liquid per gallon of water

    Make it fresh for them at least once a day, and treat for 5-7 days. Make sure this is the ONLY water they can access during this time.

    I hope it clears up the poops!! Let us know. :)
