    Is this a cause for concern. They are two weeks old and they have been eating and pooing fine so far. They've been kept in a brooder that I clean out twice a day. Last night, gave them egg yolk mashed with water to make it a slurry. They are on medicated chick feed. Anybody have any thoughts.

    You may want to use the seach button on the top and look up something similar. There are quite a few topics like this and there are some very helpfull poop charts on some of the theads. Chickens do shed intestinal lining from time to time so it could be completely normal!

    I have seen it in mine. They usually won't live long enough for it to be a problem.
