    My 17th duckling just hatched and has pooped dark green all over the brooder. The other ducklings are pooping tan and white. Should I be concerned, and should I separate the baby with the gren poop? This is the first time I've had a hatchling with green poop.

    Thank you. I've seen it with the older ducks, but never a newborn hatchling. That one just hatched about an hour ago. The oldest is about 36 hours. I'm just waiting for the last 2 to hatch now.
