    Okay, this is gross I know, but what is "normal" for chick poop? Sometimes it's runny and brown and other times kind of pale and chalky. Also when can you stop worrying about pasty butt?

    I stopped worrying about pasty butt after they were a couple weeks old..... and yes, the poo is solid sometimes, and runny sometimes.... chickens don't pee, so sometimes the poo is runnier than other times because it has more liquids coming out with it that would in other animals be "urine" but with chickens, it all comes out the same spot [​IMG]
