    I have 14 chicks that hatched on Saturday-Monday. Today I noticed that one has diarrhea. Is there anything I can do? Is this something I should be worried about?

    Try adding yogurt with live cultures into water add crumbles to make a mash. I also put about a tsp of raw organic vinegar into about 3/4 gal of their water. Hard boil an egg and mash the yolk and feed this as well will help get good bacteria into gut. Also keep their little butts clean of poo. Good luck

    I started mine on ACV yesterday I had a couple that looked like the were going to start pasty butt so I ran and got some. Then this morning I saw a Few poops in the brooder that looked like runny chocolate pudding. Thought I might have over done the ACV. I did 3.5 tbs per gal. I waited a little while and saw another one. I just finished a search and found this link.

    It was just what I was looking for. It Has pics off all kind of poo. I found it super helpful It also has explanations of each kind of poo.

    Hope this helps you too.
