Is it bright green?

I have just had this with mine. It could be that she isn't eating and the green is stomach bile because she isn't eating enough to digest it. If this may be the case try feeding her some yoghurt.

It can also be a sign of a bacterial infection.

I found out that chickens really are lactose intolorent and should not be fed any diary products of any sort the forums you find on google can be very misleading the yogurt would probably make her worse in that condition its why i asked for my how to treat sour crop thread to be removed as i plan to do an update.

the water and viniger idea is probably better to start with its possile that if she's been free ranginging its too much grass too but it could also be medacine your giving her, make sure she has grit to help her digest and if the problem persists another day seek a vets attention otherwise you could loose her.

Could she need worming? Not with a herbal type but a 'medicated' one like flubenvet 10%. Or could she have eaten any plants or weeds that could be toxic?

Hiya, any improvements?

The bright green poop definitely sounds like bile if she isn't eating anything. But there must be a reason for it...

Is her abdomen swollen? Has she laid recently? Could she be egg bound or impacted?

The green poop could also be liver failure.

Is it only her poo that is green? how are her eyes and nose?

Are you still giving her treats and have you given them ACV?

assume ACV = Aple cider vinegar, please use unfiltered from heath food or horse suppliers not the cheap stuff on the supermarket shelf which is just a cooking ingredient. Reckoned to help boost immune system along with garlic and aloe vera. But not a cure in itself
