All of a sudden the Sweet PDZ on the poop board under the Roost is getting wet. I've had the vet do a fecal...negative for worms and coccidiosis.

It can be common to have some watery droppings during hot weather when chickens drink a lot of water. Make sure they get some probiotics a couple of days a week, and plain yogurt added to their food can provide that. Many feeds already contain probiorics nowadays.

Thank you! I will do just that. The poop board looks like they have pooped normally then poured clear water uround it to make the sand wet. It has been horribly hot here and they are going through their water much faster than usual. I'll add the plain yogurt. Again thank you!
