    All the poo that my chicks dumped out look normal except for this one. It looks kind of sticky, like burnt sugar and it's shiny lol. Is this type of poo cecal? My chicks are aprox 1 week 3 days old and are on medicated feed (not so strong) and water 24/7.
    is this type of poo normal?

    Hi, I wouldn't worry too much my chicks an chickens have a poo like this regularly and are very healthy. Keep an eye on it but you will probably find normal poos coming too. Have fun with your chicks can't wait for my next batch due to hatch next week :)

    Yes, it looks like a perfectly normal cecal poo. You'll be seeing a lot of these--the chicken has two ceca in their digestive tract, which empty periodically in one big glob like this one.

    I would recommend staying out of the room for a few minutes--it will save your sense of smell [​IMG]
