    I noticed 2 of my girls have runny stool. It looks like melted milk chocolate. I've looked closely and no streaks of blood, but worried. They were not vaccinated and I had to order my corid. It's supposed to be in 2 days. They are about 3 weeks old. Is this normal?

    Every few poops they do what is called a cecal poop coming from the cecal area. These poops look like you described and usually are stinky. The cecal poop is completely normal if this is what your seeing. Hope this helps
