My 2 have started having diahrea too. I've tried yoghurt. Not much help. They have duck crumble. Few dried mealworms as treats And whatever they nibble in the garden.they do drink a lot. But I can't stop them drinking.

This may be an infection, in which case antibiotics would be needed.

Does them eating their own poop count as toxic?

Not in my experience.  It doesn't look appetizing, but mine played with their own poo with their mouths and did not apparently suffer.
