    I got 26 Cornish X on Thursday. I lost one the second morning, but the rest of them are looking great. I cannot believe how huge they are after only four days! I tried to put them back in the box they came in so I could clean the brooder out and I couldn't even fit half of them in there when all 26 were in there just a couple days ago!

    Anyway, most of them are having normal poos, but I have noticed a couple very watery poos. Maybe 3 or 4 out of the 25 have the watery poos. Should I be worried? I'm keeping everything clean and using nipple waterers. I was thinking of giving them some yogurt later. Do you think that is okay for them at this age?
