Why does my chicken have loose droppings?

Following digestion the remaining food residue is mixed with the chicken’s urine and passed via the vent.  The quality of food, quantity of treats, heat, stress, worms and general health and gut condition all affect the composition of a chicken’s droppings.  Observe your chickens regularly to understand what is normal for them so you are aware and can take action if there is a change.  If you are concerned contact your vet.
