    Had 2 silkies hatch yesterdayand overnight. Took them out of bator this morning and put in with a few that are 3 wks old. Noticed the 2 hatchlings had green runny poop. Is that normal and I just never noticed it or should I be concerned?

    They have regular water and game bird starter. Nothing green or any supplements.

    I've experienced that green runny poops means they are hungry. Usually the victims are lowest on the pecking order, or the batch of food is bad. Make sure they are eating and have sand available for proper digestion.

    I have noticed this in chicks that have just hatched. Get them drinking and eating ASAP and it should go away.
