i'm not sure what kind of chick i have. i got it from an anatomy class at a local high school. it will be a week old on this coming wednesday. My chick seems very healthy, it eats all the time and drinks a ton. It's poo is carmel colored and liquid-y. I'm very concerned about it. I'm not giving it any treatment as of now only because i don't know what to do. This is the first time i've had chicks. The brooder my chicks live in is a large tub from walmart with the top cut out of the lid with screen covering it. i have pine shaving in the bottom and a feeder and waterer from a local farm store. There is also a reflector lamp that is being replaced today for a better quality one. There is another chick with it and it's about 2 weeks old. But i had just moved them into this brooder from another one and it was doing fine while in the other brooder. It's getting around fine and doens't seem sick, i just don't know if i need to be concerned about its carmel-colored poo or not.
