    I have 5 week old chicks on medicated feed. First photo is from 2 days ago, second photo is from today, I think from different chicks but same age. Is this enough to be concerned about? I know they can shed intestinal lining, but not sure what normal looks like. help?

    It looks more like intestinal lining to me. Are any chicks acting sick (puffed up, lethargic, etc)? If so, it may be blood, and they could have Coccidiosis. If not, its probably just intestinal lining.

    That looks like some completely healthy chick poop right there. :) If they are acting fine, don't be worried one bit.

    Are you mixing your medicated chick feed with anything as at this age I have them eating a Turkey Grow with a 20% protein for healthy growth, just a suggestion not telling anyone what to do as these are your baby's [​IMG]
