    I have different breeds of chickens, Sultans, Silkies, Cochins, Crevecoeurs, Orpingtons, and Pyncheon. Can any one tell me why some have a very runny pooh, and others don't? Is it there breed or what I'm feeding them. They get Crumble and Laying Mash. As a treat I will give them a little white bread. They were all born about 3 to 4 months ago. Growing very well, healthy, and all very friendly.
    1 hen 2 roosters = sultans
    1 hen 1 rooster = silkies
    2 roosters = Creveceors
    2 hens = orpingtons
    1 hen = pyncheon
    1 hen 2 roosters = cochins
    All in 1 pen and very happy.

    I have the same issue. i noticed its runny before they lay and solid after. makes sense to me but that could also be coincidence. Mine are free range, or free yard birds lol so they eat a large variety of things from the scratch main feed grass ants kids lunch lol.

    My Roosters are having the same issue. I don't think there're going to lay, LOL. Or I'd be rich A rooster laying.
    I now have a Crevecoeur Rooster that just stand in the corner of the run, won't eat or drink. I'm very worried.
