rapid change of the corn can change the droppings over night
moderation is best when adding new corn
even better dont leave it to late before you run out
you could add a teaspoon of bicarb to a gallon of water for a day see how they go

could be a bad bag of corn but as graham says a change of corn suddenly could produce watery droppings ...try adding a table spoon of fresh lemon juice to 2 litres of water ...have a good look at that corn for mould check the maize but sometimes mould is microscopic ...you asked about oregano recently its a great product ,ropa-b being the best I have used and I use the one for putting in the drinker and its available at the ropa store a good natural product to safeguard the birds against any minor ailments atb

yes I`ll vouch for that Darren, as a few know I had problems recently with a few of my birds.....the droppings were brown and slimy, try as I might nothing seemed to sort them until I wormed them and put them on ropa b, now the droppings are perfect and the birds look stunning thanks to darrens help and advise.

More times that not etc it's just a one off thing Boosey for what I have found, unless you have wet feeder's. Pigeons need fibre So !!! peas peas & more peas for awhile or beans if they are available. All that being said Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Cinnamon/lemon & bi carb soda used on a regular basis will do more good than harm. cheers

It's just one now David, I got rid of the sack of mixed corn I had suspicions about and exchanged it for barley.
The hen with the watery droppings looks and handles fine.
I'm also wondering if it could be a bit of stress as I've put her in a section on her own because she was pairing up to another hen.
But I don't want to put her back with watery droppings, catch 22.

it could well of been just this hen doing the watery droppings and to be honest could be any number of problems or just stress as you mentioned...especially if she was paired and then isolated ...mice droppings can carry paratyphoid and would think the symptoms would have progressed by now if it was that but always check a new bag of corn and take a look at your corn merchants storage atb
