    Hey guys, my chicks are doing great. Eating and drinking, but I am noticing that a couple of them have caramel colored, liquid stools. What do I do? ACV?

    Very liquidy poop is normal. Chicks don’t pee, but their poop is mixed with their pee. Sorry for the info

    It is helpful to give young chicks both a warm and a cool space. Judge their comfort by how much time they spend in each zone. sometimes pasted vent can come from being too hot or getting chilled.
    It never hurts to provide probiotics to baby chicks. Gro2Max is a good one.

    Sounds like ordinary cecal poop, it was alarming to me the first time I saw it too. I though my baby chicken had eaten something that had gone off.

    Nope, it's a perfectly normal kind of poop that chickens make, and it's absolutely disgusting. XD It's the worst part about chickens. Wonderful stinky little angels.
