    I have this hen who I believe is a red (Not quite sure what she is) star, when I was feeding them this morning I noticed her poop was basically water, nothing really solid in it. She has been acting a little slow also. I feel like this is because of a rooster I have, he has been tormenting the red star hens and they coop themselves up in the coop to stay away from him, I do plan on getting rid of him soon but the person I am giving him to isn't quite ready for him. Whats wrong with her? [​IMG] (A healthier image of her)

    I had a few hens with water poop a few months ago so I took a stool sample to a vet for a fecal float test. They found roundworms. I treated with safeguard and the poop went back to normal.
    Can you take a sample to a vet? When is the last time your flock was wormed?

    I'm not sure if I have any vets around here, but I'll have to see about treating it. Thanks.

    Is her vent area full of droppings also? If so it's probably vent gleet, but if you can have her checked for worms that would be best. In the meantime you may want to put her on some probiotics and vitamins. Keep us posted on how she is doing and good luck :)

    Thank you and I apologize for the late reply. I still need to get the stuff for her, but she doesn't look as bad as she was before, I am trying to keep a close eye on her.
