I have four little chicks.... about 4 weeks old. Ever since I got them, there has been one that has been making a messy poo, but I've never been able to catch her in the act. I was finally successful tonight. She's my little New Hampshire. Her poops are normal looking for the first 1/5 with the following 4/5 a totally gross little slug of brownish-reddish ick. I can't be sure if there's blood or not, and although at one point one of them had a little blood speckled poo, I don't think there's blood present in these goobers. Any ideas? One more thing to note: this little one has been extremely "mouthy"--a non-stop cheeper--since she was a wee little thing. But she doesn't seem otherwise unhappy or uncomfortable, and eats and drinks well, and is growing, and also really likes to cuddle down in the cup of your hand for a rest. Thanks for the ideas.
