    I have two hens that I separated, along with 4 others because I had a couple bulleys in the coop and couldn't figure out who the trouble makers were, anyway, 2 of them have developed really runny poo. It seems to just slide down from their vent which is making their backsides really slimy and gross. They don't act like they feel bad, in fact, they act like normal, I want to put all my girls together again but until I figure out the runny butt problem, I'm not sure what to do. I did worm them like 4 days ago but they had that problem before I wormed them. If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate some help!

    Yes worms can cause diarrhea. Check the bottle- mine says to repeat in 10 days. Make sure you repeat if recommended to get the new worms that grow.

    Thanks, I used piperazine water wormer to worm them last Tuesday, should I use something else? Do you think it might be something else rather than worms? I never saw worms and they really didn't get runny until they started being bullied and having some of their feathers plucked out.
