    We rescued a bantam chick that was almost dead and the owners were going to put it in a trash bag and throw it away. We took it home and 2 days later she is thriving. We just got another chick to keep her company. They are on medicated feed and we are going to start electolytes in their water. I was holding her and all the sudden she pooped very watery. Could this be a symptom of something or what should I do about it? She has been fine up until right now. Also she is either a frizzle, cochin or a japense bantam. How do I tell what breed she is? Also the new chick we got today is supposed to be a black production is there such a breed? She is three days old and she is black with a few white markings. Thanks!
