    This is the first time I've ever raised chickens. I have 10 chicks.. 8 I picked up last Friday and 2 I picked up today. They are getting along great.. So i guess some are about a week old and the new ones are Well I had a couple chicks have pasty butt and I was advised to add electrolytes to their water and gave them scrambled eggs with biotic sprinkled in them and some yogurt.. Well tonight I noticed Green poop in the cage. I'm not sure which chick did this but I wanted to make sure this is healthy or normal after changing their diet. I'm attaching a pic of the poop, it's not the best pic and it doesn't show how green but it's the best i have right now.. Thank you for all your help in advance :) I never knew raising little chicks was so stressful.. lol

    I know there is a thread of all the variations of chicken poop on here somewhere, its amazing the variety of "normal" It looks ok to me....just keep checking for pasty butt and all should be well, as long as they are acting ok, then i say all is well
