    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'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.
