    Hi, raising some chicks the hens ignored, poo is usually the green and white stuff but today they left some that was a runny brown and looked like black--did I feed them to many bugs? Is this normal? Hope no one is trying to eat at this time reading this. [​IMG]

    It should be fine, several times a day they will do a runny poo that is brown or very dark and usually pretty smelly. lol.

    Thank you, my first time raising orphans, and they are peeping for me now, they won't go in their little coop yet by themselves yet.
