    It will help balance the intestines. I always do it when I have chicks hatch too so that they don't get pasty bum. It works!

    apple cider VINEGAR..not apple cider.

    a few days and see if the droppings clear up.

    also..you might think about keeping them confined and away from greens/grass a few days, with their chick or grower feed only, and see if that helps.

    what color are the droppings?

    watch for other signs of illness, in case they have picked up cocci while free ranging.

    Don't worry I know that. I just wrote cider instead of writing it all out.

    There normal color.
    watch for other signs of illness, in case they have picked up cocci while free ranging.

    So far no other signs of illness.​
