    Could be something he ate or a change in is usual diet. It may simply be nothing to worry about just yet as changes in poops can be normal when they happen now and then.

    However, if you continue to see this in almost every poop this may be a cause for concern. Report back for more info if it persists throughout the day. But if you don't see any more today then I wouldn't worry just yet.

    @rebecca they also need grit if they are going to eat anything other than their chick feed, they have no way to grind up lettuce and other things. So chick grit is a must.
