Are loose stools always a cause for concern?

    I ask because I am not seeing any abnormal behavior, not now, not last week; the poo is not discolored, just loose. I am not even certain which chick it is.

    Chicks are 3 weeks old. All seem to be eating and drinking fine. In fact I don't see any visible problems.

    Concerning? Or in the range of normal?

    Definitely normal, and it's probably different chicks rather than one doing it all. Give it 6 months and you will be a connoisseur of chicken poo...lol. Watery, white capped solid, no capped solid, pudding poo, chunks...lol.

    Aaah, yes. Having two young kids, I am already certified in the human species. Expanding my knowledge base!

    Thanks for the reassurance. That's all I really needed. Now if they would just stop eating it! Some chick behaviors I just have to turn my back on and walk way and try not to think about it.....
