    Ok so this is a gross topic but I'm so new at this and want to make sure I don't miss the signs of something major. My chicks started last night with brown diarrhea type poop. It doesn't have the same color or consistency it was before. They are 2 weeks old today and the only thing that has changed it I put a log in the brooder to try to stop them from pecking.

    No. I have only fed them the feed the store suggested [​IMG]

    Then I'll put my money on normal cecal poops. They are quite disgusting.
