    If you don't have too many, it might be a good idea to weigh each one now, then again in a week. I use a digital kitchen scale to weigh mine and have found that routine weigh-ins can help spot the early signs of illness.

    Watery poo can be from illness, worms, eating too much fruit, or drinking too much water in the summer (and other things probably that I don't know!).

    I would watch them as Kathy said. See if you can detect any other signs of problems.
