    so I have 4 duckling that I put in the brooder last night and they started eating and drinking this morning but when they poop it’s green and then it’s black I just want to make sure it was normal and if it’s not to do something. Thank you in advance

    Yes the first few poops will be very dark, but should become normal as they eat and drink.
