    So I have noticed some runny poo from my ladies. But for the most part it is good and solid with good coloring. No one seems sick at all... Just wondering if they can have this and not be sick. Just somethin they ate while ranging.... Is it natural?[​IMG]

    chickens, 6 months to 2 years. Laying crumbles for food. Fresh clean water daily. Ameraucanas(4) BR (3) LH (1) Black mutts (3). No evidence of worms in droppings.

    Totally natural. Bugs, grubbing and when they drink off the grass causes tar like droppings. A little laying mash or oatmeal will stiffen it up. They will eat ANYTHING. Their plumbing is made to digest just about all of it. They will get dehydrated and you will notice beaks open. Oddly enough, more water is the antidote. Make sure they aren't getting too much oily or fatty food stuff and NO sugar

    If you want to keep them clean, give Acidified Copper Sulfate in their drinking water about every 2 or 3 months. give 1/4 tspn. per gal. of water for 7 days. Most of the online supply stores carry it. I think I saw on a post where, Randall Burkey Co. has a 50% off sale on most items. I have done business with them and have been very satisfied.
