    If they're still just chicks, then they may just be getting their digestive systems in order still. If you feel the need to help them, you could try giving them some plain yogurt to help with the gut flora in their digestive system.

    Yep. They may not eat it at first, so try sprinkling some crumbles in it. Eventually they will get curious enough to try it. They may not eat a whole lot of it either.

    I have a healthy flock and I see that. And I look. [​IMG] I think it is because it's been hot. I don't worry too much about them.

    Add a tablespoon of apple cidar vinegar to their water - It helps with the digestive system and helps prevent diarrea. My chicks all look like they have runny poop sometimes and all make funny noises but the cider definately helped as did yogurt though mine didn't like it even with sprinkles till 3 weeks old the they loved it!

    Another good way to help prevent or treat chick diarrhea is acidopholis! I have my own flock and this helped treat the diarrhea my chicks have. You can get it at any local pharmacist or grocery store.
