    I have noticed this week that my RIR's and BLRW's have very runny poop....okay gross but they really squirt!lol..With the heat they are drinking TONS of water and otherwise seem absolutly fine. I figure its from the excessive water consumption but thought I would ask if any one else has seen this? I am new to chickens and want to not let anything sneak up on me!Thanks as always in advance for any input!

    Thanks for the poo chart link. I was worried but it seems my girls were too hot and drinking lots of water.
