    I started mixing in a new brand of starter, without meds, in with my medicated started to wean the chicks off of the old and into the new. They have had very wet and runny poop for a few days now. Is this normal when changing feed and how long will it last?

    i have never noticed runny poop when I changed feeds, but then again I have never used medicated but from what I know its just Amprol in the feed so that change in it of itself should not cause runny poop. Sometimes it is more firm than others. I would just keep and eye on them and make sure none act lethargic or sick. Good Luck [​IMG]
