    Yesterday I walked in and there was large, watery and white poops all over the ground. I saw several of my birds release some like that. Must it have been something I fed them? I couldn't imagine them all getting actually sick at once one day like that. I gave them some leftover scrambled eggs and sausage.

    They may have a lot of watery droppings if they have drunk a lot of water, which they may have done after a salty meal. When I have fed a pan of layer feed spiked with raw egg and plain yogurt, and they eat probably more than usual, I will see a lot of runny droppings on the roosts in the morning. This may also happen during hot weather. You can always take a few fresh droppings in to a vet for a fecal test for worms and parasites if they keep this up.
