    Iv looked at many charts of chicken poop lol. Yet I still have a question. I belive my 10 day old chicks are having cecal poops very brown,runny, and stink, but yesterday I watched one and it was almost acidic looking. Kinda bubbly.. Is this normal?
    I still see dark brw stinky poops in the brooder but I haven't had a chance to see if it's bubbly again.
    They all seem fine doin lil chicky things. Eating,drinking, ect.

    Cecal poop can be all sorts of funny.
    If you have photos that may help. If they are eating, drinking, running around doing normal little chick things, then it's most likely fine. Watch for any signs of blood or heavy mucous and lethargic behavior.
