    One of the chickens has "dire rear" I am a bit concerned about her... hadn't noticed a loose stool previously but did today... any words of wisdom would be helpful

    thanks

    Is it hot out where you are? If so they are probubly drinking more water and that will cause loose stools. Also iceberg lettuce will cause loose stools.

    Increadef waterintake, lettuce, cucumber, watermelon and worms (intestinal not the ones she pecks at in your garden☺) can all cause loose stools.
