Not sure if this is what you are talking about. Once every ten or so movements will be different. They flush out their system and it's nasty looking and smelly. This is normal. There is something else going on if it's that way every time. I saved this link just because I knew someone would need it but  http://chat.allotment.org.uk/index.php?topic=17568.0.

I'm not an expert,"ex" is a has been and a "spurt" is a drip under pressure!

THanks I did find that site previously--none of the pics look like what my chick dropped.  After watching them for a little while, the one responsible had a normal poo but then had a brown watery poo.

what age are they?

What do you feed them?

Mine girls get runny poo if I give them too much fruit.

They are a week, they are on chick starter, medicated, and today, all poo is normal.  Must be the cleaning thing I've read about??  It didn't have a smell whatsovever, but everyone is eating drinking and playing....chickens!
