    Hi all. I was outside playing with my chickens earlier today and noticed that a couple seem to have runny stools.

    They're not acting sick or even like it's bothering them; however, it concerns me. What exactly should I do? Any and ago suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

    Thank you. I hope I'm just overreacting but you can never be too careful.

    Totally true, but once you know, you know and doesn't freak you out much. 1 in 10 poops are these weird butterscotch looking poops ( with a special name I can't remember) some type of pancreatic waste... Those freaked me out!
