    Is this bad? I have noticed it on and off for several days. Feeding Chick Starter with a few mealworm treats. They are all growing fabulously. Feathering out at various rates but all are shiny and silky. None act sick.

    I did notice my biggest one [almost 4.5oz] appeared to have a speck of blood in her poo tonight.

    I'm wondering the same thing, too. Mine are about 7-8 weeks. Sometimes, the same is very light and faint. But sometimes - it nearly knocks me over. It's a sharp, putred smell. i don't get it, but everybody seems just fine - growwing like crazy
