    So, my 3 week olds are laying really big turds. Like awkwardly big. All one color, maybe a tiny bit of white on one end, not runny, but not solid either. The only thing that changed is I switched from regular waterer to horizontal nipples. They spend a ton of time with them. Seem to really enjoy the pecking.

    Maybe just over hydrated?

    Anyone?

    Our 4 week olds turds are huge now, too. Seems a natural progression to me, but maybe we'll both learn something new! (also just switched to the horizontals)

    Interesting. Hopefully that's it.

    Three big questions when trying to evaluate the health of any animal: Is it eating? Is it drinking? Does it poop? I hope the answer to the first two questions are yes. Sounds normal to me. Good luck with your babies! :)
