    Hi all - Just noticed one of my chicks ( not sure which one ) had pumped out a strange looking orange crap? I assume this is not healthy and was wondering if someone could help identify what it could be?

    they have had nothing out or the ordinary other than water and proper chick feed from the breeder...

    Any help would be appreciated.. [​IMG]

    Sounds like a cecal poo. This happens when chickens clean out their intestines. I think it happens about every 10 poos (could be wrong on the number). It's nasty and stinky, but completely normal.
