My little 2 week old chick that I got two days ago has been having runny poo. It is the same one that was very lethargic and had a wing drooping. The other two that I got with it are having normal poo and are acting fine. I don't know if it is just the chick version of ceacal(sp) poo, but it is runny and an orange/tan color.
(I tried to get the color as close as possible on my computer)
Should I be concerned? For the record, I've been giving him Poly-vi-sol, and today he seems much better. He didn't have this kind of poo before today. Could it just be the vitamins? I know those vitamins can change the color of a baby's poo (I worked in daycare for 16 years) but wasn't sure about a chicken, or if I should be worried about something else. Thanks!
