    I have 4 6 week old chicks one has diareah. brown, not bloody at all. they got into my grape vine and munched away on the fruits. Could this cause it? If it continues what sould I be treating her with. THe other three seem fine, in fact she does too, she's running and exploring with the others. But she has the runs. What can i treat her with?

    The chick should be just fine. Could be from drinking alot of water if it is warm by you. It will occur from time to time depending on alot of different factors.

    Some of the flock never seem to have the nice clean fluffy butt one would prefer.

    Try giving them some yogurt too, that'll help the intestinal upsets a lot and they usually lovvvvvvvvvvve yogurt! Mine like plain and the vanilla best. [​IMG]
