    4 out of my 10 birds have this pellet like poop that comes out with a clear mucousy liquid. They have recently been getting mellon as treats in the morning, and our temperatures have been in The 90s. They are in a shaded, large coop and run, and have plenty of water in several sources, all of which are changed daily. Normal? What should i do?[​IMG]

    It looks perfectly normal for hot/warmer weather being that they are drinking more water to keep cool and not eating enough solids to keep there poop not so watery/runny
