    What does foamy poop mean? A couple of my 5 RIR chicks are having foamy droppings. They have a heat lamp that keeps one area 95-100 degrees. They don't huddle under it at all. I feed them medicated chick starter. They are pretty active at times but take 30-40 minute sleep time breaks in between. They all seem pretty healthy otherwise.

    I noticed this when I first picked up my babies. I figured it was because they hadn't started on food yet and were still passing yolk.
