Hi. I have 4 ducklings that are about 2 weeks old. They are acting normal, but yesterday their poop turned black. They eat non medicated poultry crumbles and occasionally fruits and veggies like watermelon and lettuce. When they play outside, they pick at the grass and leaves. They seem fine but I have read that black poop is a sign of disease or infections.

I am looking around at their poop and it seems some of the more recent ones are actually white now.
