    It seems like both of my light brahmas poop is runny and extreamly smelly. Is this the same for you? My buff orpingtons poo is nice and hard, and doesnt really smell, but when i am in the coop and i smell the most awfull smell i know who did it, and then i find the pile of melted herseys. It seems like the one who eat the most scratch is the worst, but i thought scratch was supposed to harden it? Any ideas? Thanks! [​IMG]

    The corn in scratch can loosen stools. I would give them a break from scratch for a while. Offer some oatmeal or yogurt as an alternative and see if that helps.

    how much scratch are you giving them?
    maybe you're giving too much.

    what all do you feed?
