    I have a chicken with very watery diarrhea, but no other problems I can see. I checked and she is not egg bound or anything else I can see. She does feel just alittle thiner than the others. Advice?

    chicken or chick? They both get watery dia... for no reason. cooked rice will help solidify but not too much. Some birds are just skinny some are fat. just like people.

    I forgot to mention that the liquid has a very foul smell. She otherwise seems fine. Its really nothing to worry about?

    how old is she?

    how long has she had the diarrhea?
    what color is it?

    what all do you feed?

    has she been wormed?

    are you able to take a fecal sample to a vet for fecal float, (or worm and protozoa test)?

    This is not normal..and IS something to be concerned about.
