    we were gone for a few days and the neighbors took care of the animals. my br hen has been acting a little strange. still eating and drinking and i think she layed yesterday. today i noticed she had really watery,white poop. she looks a little ruffled but is still going around the yard with the other girls. she is 6 months old and i feed them layer crumbles,scraps,and they free range at least 3 hours a day. im learning as i go and i dont have a clue as to what this is. i also had a problem with one of my hens having poo stick to her feathers around the vent,we trimmed her up and she seems fine. but,ive noticed that now the br is having this also. could this have something to do with the white,watery poo? what makes this happen?

    Mine do white watery poop if they get in and steal the cat's food. I think that too much cat food is not good for them.
    I suggest you keep them off the scraps for a while and see if things improve.

    i dont think they have had any cat food but they will go right up and steal dog food. as far as scraps they get any leftover eggs,breads,rice that sort of thing. hopefully it is just something she ate,that is a relief to know.
