    Hello everyone...have a question hope someone can assist. We have 10 chicks about 3 weeks old. We are new to this so I tend to notice every little change. Some of the chicks have fairly runny poop and some have poop that almost seems too solid...if that makes any sense LOL. Should I be worried about either group? They are all very active and eating and drinking well. And they are all trying to escape their temporary home LOL.
    Thanks for any insights!

    Quote:Thanks I have seen this several times...gross LOL. But it is helpful and informative and I don't know why I did not think to look here. I will assume everything is ok then. I watch for behavior as a sign most of all...I figure as long as they are active and eating and drinking they are ok. But I am a worrier so just wanted to check. Thanks! [​IMG]
