What causes diarrhea in chickens?

Answer

Diarrhea in chickens is usually caused by the E. Coli bacteria. Diarrhea in chickens produces loose, watery stools and can range from mild to severe, depending on the strain of bacteria. Different bacterial strains cause different types of infections while some strains cause no infection or diarrhea. Chickens can acquire the E. Coli bacteria through digestion or respiration. The bacteria is more common in younger chickens than older chickens. The mortality rate is also higher for younger chickens than for older chickens.
