    Is this concerning poop for a 2 week old chick?

    What are you feeding them? Poop color and consistency can change based on diet.

    Just regular chick crumble. I have put a tiny bit of apple cider vinegar in their water and a little bit of plain greek yogurt here and there. It is just the one chick that I am concerned about. It's poop is like straight liquid.

    I would stop the vinegar and the yogurt, both could cause some digestive upset, and you can see if it improves. Feed the crumble and dig up a chunk of clean sod, dirt and all for them to peck at and to get some natural grit going. I try to find a piece with some dandelion greens.
