We have 14-6 week old chicks. I noticed a week ago some orangish/reddish colour in one dropping. It was just the one time so I kept and eye out. Now today I have found more. It's definitely from more then one chick. They are acting perfectly normal running around enjoying life. I have Corid I just don't want to treat unless needed.
They have been going outside, I clean their water daily, it has a small amount of acv in it, we feed them untreated organic feed.
Advice please.
I've had chicks before just never noticed this.

Thanks in advance

I think it's fine it's just something in their diet that changed there color of poop just like sometimes ours turns green.( don't say you've never had green poop I know you have)

Yes I've had green poop, that's for sure. We have hens and rooster, older chicks and young chicks.
THe only ones that have the orangy pink poop aren't the older chicks. That's why I though that it was weird.

Thank you,
Would you recommend to treat with corid just incase?
Or should I just keep an eye out?

Update, it's been almost 3 days and no more coloured poop and all birds are doing well. I will still keep and eye out. Thanks all
