Is it normal for chicks to occasionally have very runny poo?

    One of my 4 day old chicks has very runny dark brown poo that looks like diarrhea. Is this normal occasionally? Or should I be concerned? I"m not sure which one it is and they're all acting normal.
    THank you.

    They will all do that occasionally for the rest of their lives. It is a normal chicken thing.
