    We have been working out in the barn a lot the past two days, and I have heard a lot of "squirt" noises when the pullets and babies are pooping. Seems to be wet, more aptly described as watery, with little bits of gravel in it. Just very, very wet. It is water colored or very dark grey/brown. Not red. With a pullet who appears to have a foot injury, a baby chick with a crooked neck, and all these wet poops, is there anything I should be treating them for at this point? I realize the pullet has what is hopefully just a physical injury, but Geez oh Pete, this has me hyper vigilant right now (and seeing problems everywhere).

    I feel your pain! I have a sick chick & I have been seeing problems everywhere! I have worried so much, I'm surprised I haven't laid an egg. Wish I had some advice to give but all I can offer is sympathy & best wishes. Good luck with your flock!
