    What could runny white poop mean? A few of my hens have it stuck to their butts.

    The white in the poo is uric acid from the liver which is normal on all poo. If your birds seem pretty healthy, but it has been hot, it is possible that they are having runny poo from the heat. My chickens don't eat much when it is too hot and they get runny clear poo sometimes, with these urates in them.

    But keep an eye on them for any illness that they may have. [​IMG]
