    Hi all!
    One or two of my 2 week chicks have runny poop. Do I need to worry?

    Nope! Happens to mine too! I'm pretty sure it's fine.

    The only reason your chickens have runny poop is because they get it from eating foods not meant for everyday eating. (such as people food and treats) It's nothing to worry about. Of course hard poopsies are the best result.

    Me too, and they still get them, they are a little on the solid side but are surrounded by liquid, I asked the feed store and they said it's normal

    Wait a minute, I just read food with too much protein can cause it

    Never mind, I just remembered that I fed my chicks scrambled egg, I think my food is fine.

    Okay. I'm not very good at this stuff, but i know that one cause can be treats and people food
