    Hello, I am a first time chicken mommy!!! I picked up my chicks 5 days ago and all 8 are acting like little happy chicks. However I noticed 2 of them have runny stools. I have been trying to find some info about it and what I can do, but the search is not going to well... Any suggestions?

    What color is the poop? I have noticed with my chickens that this happens from time to time. It depends on what they have been eating and how much they have been drinking. If they are acting normal, running around and eating fine, I wouldnt worry too much. If you wanted you could give them some pedilyte for extra electrolytes. Good luck and keep us updated!!

    Well sounds like your keeping a close eye on them, and that's a good thing!! They are very cute by the way, what breed are they?
