    Soo this may be a silly question, but when do I expect my chick to do, well....it's first...doo doo???

    Just curious I don't want a blocked-up chick and so far no poo (it hatched today).

    thanks lol.

    First few poos will be a nice slimy green. Yuck! It takes between 12-24 hours for it to start showing up.
