    I have 13 chicks I got 1 1/2 days ago. They are 1 week old ( acouple are only 3 days old). One or more of the week old ones has runny poop (orangish-brownish color)

    I got some chick feed from where I got the chicks and dont know if it has coccidiostat in it. But it is fresh. I will be getting medicated feed tommorrow. will this be enough?

    These are the chicks that had crusty butt and still 3 have protruding butts (still working on that)--maybe it was the medicine I put on their butt?

    A few orange brown poos are normal. It is called cecal poo and they stink!

    Best thing you can do is keep good feed and water for them and let them be. They will grow fast.
