    Poop question: Had them all together for about a week. Poop has gone from the normal grayish/white to a yellowish brown. Is this diarrhea? If so, what should I do to fix it?

    My chicks are at 8 weeks now and at times they also had a wet dark brown poop. I didn't do anything about it and all is well. Now if there was blood or the color of blood....that could be a different story.
    Somewhere on this site there is a poop chart...
    Welcome to BYC, I hope you enjoy this site and your chicks!!!

    Thanks for the info. I'll be on the lookout for a change in color. My brothers and I raised hens and cocks about 25 years ago and I can't remember a thing other than how to butcher one!

    OH, I did find that "poop chart" with some excellent pictures. I have to say the "normal" range is huge so the chicks aren't showing anything out of the norm.
