    Here, check this website out. There are a bunch of chicken poo pictures, and it shows a variety of normal poos and the ones that aren't normal, it says what is wrong. Someone posted this in another BYC thread that was discussing chick poo

    I hope this helps you out, and I wish I had advice to give you....I am a newbie who is still waiting on my chicks [​IMG].

    crzychicken, keep a close eye on them. Sometimes they will have a tiny bit of blood in the poop from straining and bursting a blood vessel. However, if it continues you shuld definitely be concerned. I know the most common problem that causes bloody poo is coccidiosis but that will usually put down a young chick pretty fast.

    This is a great reference site as well, it covers all kinds of abnormalities, though it doesn't have all the simpler explanations in some cases, just the major ones.

    It's more geared toward full grown chickens but it is a good reference to have anyways.
