If the diarrhea is a yellow color, it's probably milk scours and that can be normal if his mother is a high milker. Otherwise, no, it isn't normal and something is wrong.

if its a mild case just keep a very close eye..tummy should adjust..
I was just reading that, she looks like the pic at 3
Days old. She seems to really act
Ok and she is still drinking from mom
Should I give her anything else?

if its just pasty like the pic,and as long as she is acting normal other wise.....I would see how she is doing tomorrow,I would go a head and give a pinch of baking soda in about 2 cc of water and drench if it turns runnier then I would give CD Antitoxin and pull her off mom for 12-24 hours and give her electrolytes....

It does seem to be getting better. It's still very yellow but much thicker mire human like no pebbles. Is this normal?
