    Hi All-
    I have 4 new 'teenagers'...about 3 months old. I still have them on Nutrena Chick Starter. I noticed in their coop, some runny poop and some solid poop. I also noticed some pinkish or red (blood??) tinged slimy poop. Is this normal? These are my first birds and I have only had them about 10 days...
    AM wondering if they are just getting used to their new home...having a bit of stress??
    Occasionally, my (little) dogs will bark at them thru the fence, but I try to shoo them away from the hens if I catch the dogs barking at them.

    Any info is appreciated. They seem to be eating and drinking normally and not fighting or doing any out of the ordinary behavior.
    I do try to visit them every day and have already cleaned their coop, so it is clean.

    Thanks!!
