    [​IMG] I am a newbie. I am not sure which one but poop looks like tar or thick molasses also the color of molasses. They are acting normal. I had some organic fertilizer out. Could they have eaten that???

    That's cecal poo and totally normal. Every so often they have a poop like that. You can do a search for it and see that your chickies are fine.
