no one has vomited. only one (of two) of the new additions has unusual
poop. we seperated him immediately when we found the mucus, but I am sure
the others have been exposed to whatever he has, if contagious. the one
with the mucus poop has now moved on to regular size and consistency poop,
but with a green tint. he has also started grinding his teeth. am I looking
at ECE? what in the world do I do now?
