    Hey guys! We feed our 2 week old chicks medicated chick starter, and two of our three chicks sometimes have runny poops. I was wondering if this was normal?

    Thanks,

    A worried Mother

    Every 8-10 poops will be cecal poo which will be light brown and runny. You are probably just catching then at that poo.

    They sound very normal. You wouldn't believe the variety of chicken poops out there. I'm still amazed, even after all that I've seen [​IMG]

    I asked the same thing. As gross as it was, the images were the best nerve calmer ever. I never would have imagined there could be such a variety of normal.
