    I ordered fifteen Sicilian Buttercups from Cackle Hatchery and received them 3 weeks ago. They are feathering out well and are very healthy looking. I'm raising them in the house so they are staying warm and very active. Their stools have been very normal up until yesterday when I noticed that their were some dark brown stools in with the normal. Is this a problem or normal?
     
  2. Normal.

    There are many things that can effect their poo oooh. It has been my experience that this is normal.
    Change in diet, or surroundings can effect things like this. Also you may want to start to introduce (in small amounts) things that can help their digestion. A little grit, a few soft greens, dirt can all help.
