Watery Stool...should I worry?

    Hi,
    One of my three pullets is having watery stool, like water with a smaller amount of stool. I don't know if I have anything to worry about, but I don't want to take any chances! The other two have solid stool, but all are eating, drinking, playing and acting normal.

    I do give lettuce, lots of fruits and I noticed the watery stool after they ate some lettuce.

    Is watery stool a sign of anything that I need to be concerned with? Please help!!

    Thanks in advance!

    Cindy

    Is it discolored or foamy? If not it may just be the extra treats you are giving.

    I think I know what might be causing the watery poo...this morning I hand fed my three girls some lettuce and(as I suspected) the SLW ate most of the lettuce and she's the one I thought was making the watery stool! But, I'll still be on poo alert just to be safe...

    BTW, dlhunicorn's poo-ology page is wonderful!!!! Thanks for sharing your wealth of information and research!!!
