    Hey everyone! My new chicks are 1 week old. I have noticed when one of them poops its a litlte pile of brownish poop and then its all wet on the paper towel in a big circle around it. I was going to give them some egg, is the yolk or the white better? I have also heard them sneezing a little bit, but read on many posts here that when they change environments they can get a little sneezy and everything. No discharge or anything. Let me know your opinions please. Thanks so much.

    That little brown poo is cecal poo. Not to worry as long as it's not every poo. It's normal.

    Oh ok, that helps. I also wanted to ask...one of them keeps opening his mouth as if he was yawning kind of...keeps doing it though. He is standing under the lgiht, but not panting as if he was too hot. Any ideas?

    One other thing about the poop, is it normal to have like a water spot on the paper towel all around the poop. Seems to be kind of big?
