    I have 10 chicks that are three weeks old. Some have "normal" solid looking poo and some have mustard or molases colored gooey poo. Chicks are fed Non-medicated organic chick feed. They reside in a brooder and all are growing wonderfully and eating/drinking well. Any info you have is much appreciated.

    chick poo, IMO, is like anything else...its almost like each one has its own "stuff" lol...

    as long as they are eating/drinking, and not having pasty butt (which is where the poo dries up around the vent making it hard/impossible/painful for them to go..then you have to clean it off gently) ...I dont htink you have anythign to worry about..

    I know with my full grown hens..if they are stressed, they get really runny po
    o...same is going for chicks too..
