    What color should chick poop be? Most of them are pooping greenish. A couple of them that had some issues with pasty butt are pooping more brown
     
  2. well if you are feeding them chick starter it should be brown but if it is green it might be something they are eating

    I would not be super concerned unless there was blood in it. Or they were acting strangely.

    Keep an eye on things and add a little apple cider vinegar to the water. Like a tsp to a liter. That helps with any pasty butt.
