    Hi Guys,
    I have 16 chicks hatched Monday I guess. Most the poop seems solid but their are a few puddles tan in color and I have even seen a few just like brown water.
    Is that normal?
    I watch them on a off and they all seem ok eating, drinking, running, flapping and sleeping.
    Thanks
    Rhonda

    Howdy! Nice pop page [​IMG]
    I have a question and you may be the person to ask...anybody with a pop page like that is bound to know![​IMG]
    I am in a hatch, babes are between the ages of fresh from the shell to 24 hrs old. I am noticing any poop is a neon-green color. Not anything I have ever seen before in a hatch...
    any idea? salmonella?
    think it is anything to worry about? Mostly curious, not a lot I could do but wait and see...but never know!
    Thank you
