I may be to only person who exams her chicks poop (hope not - stems from being in nursing and checking BM for signs of illness- blood in the stool, etc.) Some of my chicks have pastey butts (I get that - unlike rabbits some poop will stick to their down) and I have been cleaning them to prevent blockage. However, last night I noticed that some of chicks had foamy bubbly poop, some really watery, some so watery that it was liquid and some 'normal' creme consistancy poop. My husband ordered the chicks from a hatchery online that guaranteed, vaccinated (?) and medicated the chicks against coccis (?) the hatchery appeared reputable but I worry that I am doing something wrong. Do I need to add something to their diet -unmedicated started feed is what they are eating? They just arrived on Monday (so about a week old). Should I add elctrolytes and vitamins? Can I over do it? What is an organic mite/licer? When do I need to apply it? Am I over thinking this- I mean birds have been around for thousands of years.
