    Just checked on my chicks for the night and two of them pooped what was essentially water. I read on that very helpful poop page that this can be a sign of overheating. Is there anything else that this could indicate?

    (the poop page for those who havent seen it yet: http://www.chat.allotment.org.uk/index.php?topic=17568.0

    lowered the house temperature a degree which should lower the room theyre in by 2-3 degrees. I also raised their heat lamp some. They are two weeks old today and have pin feathers and a decent amount of their first real feathers in. Anything else i should do?

    Also I dont know if it makes any difference but Ive been giving them vitamins (Poly-vi-sol) in their water for the last three days. Today was the last day.

    I would think maybe it is the heat...but maybe someone who knows will come along. *bump*
