    I have 3 brabanter chicks who made it out of 12 eggs..it was a rough hatch and I lost one chick the day after.

    All 3 are eating and drinking, and seem perky but at least two have clear poop with brown bits in it.

    I have been cleaning them due to pasty butt as needed but I want to know if this clear poo is normal.

    I have probiotics and electrolytes in their water ( not sure if this maters)

    Not on medicated feed.
    Id say the poo is 80% clear 20% brown.
    I didnt think to get a pic when we had them out but I will be cleaning the brooder tonight and see If I can.

    Thank you

    Edit I was wrong they are 6 days old
