    I had chicks born last week, they are bout 7 days old now.
    One of them had a 'rough navel', it seemed to dry up with no problem....this morning...brown runny poo...it's just solid liquid!
    What is wrong?
    How to fix it?

    The others have little soft, but formed, poo. I saw this one, so I know which one it was.

    You could try to give it a bit of cooked rice...If it has it all the time...Even chicks can do Splort which is the cecal droppings that are liquidy and smell awful.

    You can also offer a little yogurt for good probiotics to help replace the good bacteria that is being eliminated.

    Unless you see blood I don't think there is a problem. Sometimes it just not as formed.
