    Last Couple of days there has been a lot of runny poo around the coop, its pure brown with no white. Should I be worried?

    Sounds okay. Are they getting a lot of table scraps that has a high salt content? Sometimes too much treats will cause probs. Take a look at this site & see if your poo looks like what's on this site: http://www.chat.allotment.org.uk/index.php?topic=17568.0 Hope things improve for your chickens. [​IMG]

    resent treats are 2 apples, oatmeal, yogurt, and some premixed greens. I'm not thinking any have high salt content.

    Thanks!​

    It sounds like your ok then- yeah! [​IMG] Sounds like you give yours the same stuff I do as well. I know it's gross, but I do look at our chickens poo frequently to make certain things are ok and, of course, to ck for worms. Yuck!
