    Ummm... wierd question but... my chicks have regular poop.. you know regular dark greenish with white at the end and firm
    but every now and then they make this REALLY STINKY light tan/brown poop that's a little runny and soft..... WHY? OMG it stinks sooooooo bad!!!
    oh and when they step in it [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Then they expect me to hold them after they step all in it! [​IMG] [​IMG]
    So is it NORMAL? [​IMG]

    Medicated feed gives them runny, stinky poop.

    Never heard THAT one before. My BO's were 17 weeks on medicated chick starter and the ole poop was completely normal.​

    The one I bought in Agway gave mine poop that stunk to high heaven! Reddish and runny too. It was all gone when I switched them to chick grower feed.

    Their firm poop with the white dollop at the tip is the equivalent of our urine. The stinky, brownish poop that has the consistency of pudding is the equivalent of our - well, ours stinks, too!
