    Well I moved this years BBW to their summer camp where they get sun, exercise and grazing. My question relates to whether or not
    I should be concerned about the fact their stools are a little "loose". They are still brownish, but seem a little watery, not liquid but not mostly solid. I'm guessing that it will take a couple of days to readjust their systems to all the new (green grass!!!) food they are trying out. Anyone verify? [​IMG]

    I think you are correct, it's just a change in diet and I wouldn't be too concerned uless they show other signs of stress or illness or if it doesn't correct itself in a few days.

    Thanks,

    They look ok and happy, are still curious about the outside world (OOOO!!! what's that?) and are still eating and drinking, but better safe than sorry (and out the 6 weeks and no chance for replacements)
