    I have 30 Cornish roaster chicks that are 5 days old or so. They’ve been eating and drinking like mad. I've been feeding them 20% chick starter and the broiler booster in the water that McMurray suggested they have. Since the beginning the majority of their poops have been liquid or very loose. Some even look like brownish colored foam. I'm kind of concerned... Should I be?

    Mine were the same. I don't remember when things started to "firm up", but it wasn't too long.

    I take solace in the fact that we live on the very top of a hill and 99% of the time it's windy....
