    I started my chickens on Tylan 50 three days ago for respiratory problems; can this cause black stools? Is it anything to worry about or will it pass when the treatment is over?

    I can't say if it is the Tylan. It could be something they have eaten (kale?). Charcoal can cause black stools, but I don't recall reading anything about Tylan causing this.
