    Don't know which one or ones it is yet, but some of my chicks seem to have runnier poop than others. Is this normal? All birds seem to act and eat fine.

    I have the same question so I am going to follow this thread. One spot (out of many) bordered on a ruddy color too. Mine just turned 5 days old today and had I not had them on paper towels, I wouldn't have noticed and maybe it's not a big deal. I have been cleaning out the paper towels 3X/Day but I swapped them out with straw this afternoon which has to be better than walking through the poop from a sanitation perpective. They were very excited, and noisy, about the straw and scratching in it.

    Thank you for asking this question!
