    I've had broilers before ... but that was 10+ years ago .... I'm around it being a 4-h advisor but mostly its full grown poo.

    when my chicks first arrived it was the consistansy of like idk .... brown babyfood ? LOL now some is blackish - i guess that could just be dried ..idk.. and some is very liquid . some is still babyfoodish

    i have 15 chicks so i have no idea who is pooing what of course ... they are on medicated feed too. .

    is this normal ? is it the feed ? should i be worried ?

    I don't think this is anything to worry about. it is probably just that some are dried and some are fresh and watery.

    It will vary, especially when they are very young. I agree, don't worry about it if they seem healthy.
