    One chick has almost medium to dark chocolate colored runny poo. I don't see blood. Not totally watery. I'm not sure which one it is and I can't tell because they don't look sick. Getting concerned - anyone have any ideas what it might be or what I should try?

    If the poo happens every 5 or 6 poos it is normal cecal poo that cleans out the intestines. No worries! [​IMG]
