    I have three show chickens and they always have runny poop sometimes it's so bad it shots like 6 inches out. I worm them every month, they have no mites, and lay regular. But after I feed them scratch they seem to sneeze a lot like water comes out of their noses. They hardly poop solid and it's a gray color and the runny poop is a brown color or also when it shots of it is clear with little chunks of food. What could be happening? They run around and seem fine.

    I'm certainly no expert, but you do not need to be de-worming your flock every month - that is too frequent and it could be affecting their metabolism and what you are seeing them excrete.

    In terms of poo - take a look at the photos in this link.

    I'll leave the floor open to the experts...
