    How hot is it where you live?

    My best guess on age is between 4-6 weeks old
    and I live in Oklahoma so it's been in the 90's all week.

    It's a little hard to see the pictures, but i don't think i would worry.

    Here's a link to a bunch of poop pictures that's kind of a guide to what's normal and what isn't. See if any of those looks familiar.

    I'm guessing that you're seeing either caecal poop or just runny poop because it's hot, and they're drinking a lot. If you see blood, that's another matter.

    I think it is just the caecal. It is not foam it is coming from what I believe in my Roo, yet he is eating and drinking an chasing my hen and my unknown sex chicks around.
