    Hello, my chicken has been pooping weirdly compared to other droppings I have seen to 2 other chickens I have previously owned. Her poop comes out in little balls (urate and normal coloring on it). I'm worried that this isn't healthy. She also occasionally poops out a lot of water and little pellets of poop in it. I've heard this is a sign of lack of eating, but I feed her everyday and she eats heartily. Is it from bugs? I give her canned crickets sometimes as a treat (Fluker's Canned Crickets). Maybe that's the problem? It could be salmonella or something but I don't think that's it. She free ranges and she has gotten fatter since we have gotten her. Add your own post if you have your own worries / had a similar situation or simply, help. : ) Thanks!
