    I have four chicks, 1 1/2 weeks old. I've noticed their poo seemed a bit watery, but the lastbthree days one of them (maybe more) has been pooing like this
    [​IMG]

    These are not cecal poos, I've seen the one chick poo like this four times in a row.

    This chick also sits more often that the others. At first we thought it was cute, that she sits in my son's hand, but now I'm worried it's more. Do chicks sit down in hands like that often? (every time?)

    Please help!!!

    Thoroughly check it's vent for abnormalities and make sure it is clean and free of debris. I would separate it because it may be contagious. If not organic, I would give it electrolytes and maybe some medicated feed, and keep an eye on it.

    Good luck!Hope it is all turns out.

    Thank you. I don't see anything abnormal besides the poo and the sitting down. She can walk and run and hop, but she sits more often than the others do.
