Wait! Runny poo can be the food!? So glad I joined this thread because some.of mine have been runny or large quantity of poo! I had one.die of.pasty butt a day shy of 1 week and.one the day or two after had a small piece of.poo stuck to it's bum but not pasty butt and it came off quickly and.otherwise healthy. All others have been healthy, even thriving. This has confused me because everything I've seen says runny poo means they are UNHEALTHY and I was worried they had some disease but again all act healthy. I had no idea it could be food. It is kind of bad food though anyway I think. Just Agway brand and, of course, medicated. The guy said people usually feed it until 8 weeks but I think ours is starter/grower and recommends 16 weeks. I want them to not get sick but I also don't want them to feel yuck. But they all fly and act healthy so maybe it doesn't affect them. But 6 more weeks seems like a long time (8 total, 2 weeks old now). Should I take them off it? I don't want them sick though. But so glad it could just be feed because I thought they were too warm and was worried haha
You can try just putting them on reg. chick feed, see how they do. I really don't have them on the medicated very long..some folks don't like using it at all..for other reasons than runny poo. They just don't like medicating.
