    I've been watching my chickens to try to learn about their ways and habits. One thing that may not be the most pleasant subject is their poop. What is considered normal. Every morning when I clean the coop sand there is all kinds of shapes and sizes. But one seems to be somewhat loose. She eats what all the rest get and free range about 4 hours a day. Some days it's loose but with some shape. Other times it's just like colored water. It's one of the RIR's. She's 21 week old as in most of the rest.

    Ideas, and do I need to seperate her? Everybody else is fine. Oh, the odor is much worse than the others also.

    I read somewhere that every 8th poop or so it will be runny. I'm not sure if that is the correct number, it may be more than that, but she's probably fine.
