We got 7 chicks of different mixed breeds from a local hobbiest almost two weeks ago. Chicks are all gaining weight, energetic, feathering out, etc. For the past three days we have seen what I would have suspected was berry stain in droppings in the cage. But it has been three days since they had some greek yogurt snack (some of the berry 'stuff' from the bottom got mixed in) and a little of a tomato. The day before, they were able to be outside for about a half hour on the lawn, but I am not aware of anything other than mostly dead grass and dirt in that location. Otherwise, they have only been in their cage, on pine shavings. I have seen three of the birds have this in their droppings, not sure of the others. I have seen blood in dog and cat stool, and it did not look like this at all, which is why I figured it was just an accidental berry. But for the last four days, they have had only the store feed- no other food. Could someone tell me if there is something we should be doing for these chicks? (We are their home until March, when they go to their farm home.) after 20 minutes and even some hangout time on my arm (which always usually gets a few results) nobody would give me a "sample" this morning, but this is a pic from some from last night, with both 'normal' and 'berry color' on the chips. The color spreads on the chips just like a berry stain does when waxwings migrate through here. But I never would have thought it could take so long to move out of their system. ? The chicks are on a medicated feed, but otherwise I suspect they have had no vaccinations or medications. I just wanted to be sure there is not a disease that could show this kind of symptom.
