    I have been seeing quite runny and watery poop around our coop. And I recently saw a black one that looked quite watery before it dried up, but there usually green or white coloured. I'm sorry if your drinking or eatting[​IMG] but should I be worried? What should I do? Thanks in advance

    Runny pop is sometimes a sign of trouble. However, in the recent hot weather runny poop happens simply due to heavy water intake. Look at the poop to determine if there are worms or blood. There are some forum articles on this sight that have photos of good and bad poop to help you identify a problem. But, here in SC we are seeing it from all the water they are drinking. Keep them watered and maybe put a fan across them.

    I'm in England and the hot weather did last long enough to put a fan down. Haha thanks for the advice.
