    [​IMG]Poop check! Is this alright? 4 days old. Brooder at 95 with plenty of space for them to move away from heat. FF. (I'm pretty sure it's fermenting). Water w/UnACV and vitamin/elec packet.

    Don't see any blood in it. Looks normal to me.

    Okay! Thanks, I didn't see blood either, but all the rest poo is much more formed. It looks almost brown..mucky.

    I can't believe I'm dissecting chick poo.

    This may be of help to you in the future: http://chat.allotment.org.uk/index.php?topic=17568.0

    Warning: Actual poo photos in that link.

    About every eight to ten movements chickens have what's called a ceacal (cecal) poo. Think of it as a flushing of their intestinal tract. Perfectly normal.
