    Hi Y'all...

    I just noticed this on the walkway after letting the chickens free range for the day...It's dried up now, but it WAS very watery...I found evidence of similar poop in their poop boxes, but since I use a combination of play and stall sand in their boxes, it's hard to know how long this has been going on...All birds seem very healthy and (although it's freezing cold here) they are starting to lay eggs (they're Easter Eggers and Orpingtons and they are about 6-7 months old)....They have been off of medicated crumbles for a month or longer...I'm guessing this is either an egg issue or a coccidia issue, but I'd love to know what people think it is and what I should do to treat it...

  2. If Birds free range they get some strange poops....Drinking lots of water can cause it to.....Unless the Bird is acting sick?....It is normal....

    @casportpony is the poo guru (among others). Maybe she will pop by and lend a hand later in the day.

    Good luck
