    My chicks are 3 wks and 4 wks old. The last 2 days their droppings have been very loose. I did give them yogurt for the first time 2 days ago-would that cause it? And do I need to worry?

    Chicken poo is normally kind of loose. The yogurt could have caused it, but I can't be sure. Do you see any pink or red in their stool?

    Just checked and no pink or red. Till now, they've been pretty solid?
