1 doctor agrees

In brief: Normal variation

The main agent adding color to the poo is the material made by the liver called bile.
It starts out a dark green and goes thru the yellows to brown depending on the influences of various factors in the intestines. Rapid transit thru the system, as may occur with diarrhea or breast feeding may have a greenish yellow or yellow appearance. The slower, more likely browner.Likely unrelated to BCG
