    I have three little chickies-- I've had them a week, and I think they were 2-3 days when I got them.

    One is making runny poo. Not super liquidy, but not as well shaped as the others. I haven't been able to tell which one it is, yet.

    They have medicated feed. Generally, they all seem happy, healthy, are eating and drinking well, sleeping nicely, and seem all around rather content.

    Should I be worried?

    Not really....you will also see poo that looks like melted chocolate every now and again too...that is normal. Just watch them and make sure they are eating and drinking normally and their behavior is not changing to act sick or weakened.

    Dont worry yet. Mine did the same thing. Gave 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar in 1 gall water. Cleared up in a few days.
