    I have a month old chick that I have ssen pooping yellow, liquidy feces! She is otherwise very healthy, clear eyes cheeping and eating flying and drinking. Do u know what is wrong??? I also have some pooping dark brown, like melted chocolate. They are eating medicated chick starter.

    Any help is welcome,

    Someone here told me to look at this site (see below), if you haven't already. Maybe you could also try some chick electrolye powder added to her water or a tsp of apple cider vinegar per gallon of water. I've also been told to give them a very small amount of plain yogurt which helps the digestive tract. If your girl does have diarrhea then you'd want to avoid the yogurt though.

    I used sugar water for a couple of days and mine had that tar looking poop. I cut out the sugar water and it cleared up in a day or so. Good Luck... don't know about the yellow.
