    I would suggest not buying ANY new chicks until you have this figured out. You need to concentrate on what's sickening and killing your birds and get them medicated appropriately.
    In the liquid droppings, do you see any blood or parasites?
    Does she sneeze a lot? Cough? Is the nasal drainage clear or colored?

    Welcome to BYC.

    It sounds like they have a respiratory disease.
    Depending on which one sometimes antibiotic treatment will help with any secondary infections, but will not "cure".
    If you have any chicks that are healthy and showing no symptoms, I would separate them from the sick ones.

    Keep the sick ones warm, feed chick starter if you can get it, give fresh water and if you have them some poultry vitamins/electrolytes.

    Almost all respiratory illnesses are contagious and birds even when symptom free are considered carriers for life.
    If you services available I recommend that you send a bird for necropsy so you can get an idea of which disease you are dealing with.

    That is an antibiotic.

    The link to common poultry diseases I have provided you, if you will look at it gives a good overview of Respiratory Diseases, Viral Diseases and Non-Respiratory Bacterial Diseases. It is a long list, but gives information on symptoms, how it is transmitted, treatment (if any) and prevention. There is a symptoms comparison chart at the end.
