    It was the smelly kind!

    In all seriousness. My pullets (ages 6wks-5months old) Have had alot of fruit this week. I had bought some cantaloupe at Costco last friday and just wasn't in the mood for it. So I gave it to the girls yesterday and today. ( It hadn't gone bad or anything)

    They're having some flatulence issues tonight along with watery poop. Not such a big deal. I'm not worried about that.

    The questions are: How much is too much fruit? and Is it normal when chickens have lots of melons to have watery poop or gas?

    I know there isn't really anything ailing them. They just finished treatment for cocci.
