    Not trying to be nasty or anything, but I'm very concerned about my chicken.

    I just walked by and her poop was nearly liquid, and it just shot right out. Is this normal?? Does it mean she is sick, or an egg is coming?

    Yes, it's been getting up around 110 here. [​IMG] - They are in the shade, and they have plenty of water. They tend to dig in the dirt to get the coolness of the earth.
