What does normal day old chick poo look like?

I've had my chicks for two days now and have them on paper towels. I'd like to monitor their poo, but I honestly don't know if what they are producing is normal. I guess there's more of a wet spot around the poo on the paper towel than I expected.

I think that is fine. The paper towel will pull moisture from the poo. Tiny chick poo looks kind of brownish green like overcooked creamed spinach but might have a bit of white in it. Generally, poop is a good sign, it means they are eating and their system is working. I bet they are doing "yoga" too.
