    What can I use for diarrhea in one of my silkie juveniles apx. 4 months old? She's Healthy, eats well, looks good, just doesn't have solid poops. she's in a coop with 6 others, all eat the same unmedicated chick starter/layer crumbles with daily treats (cooked pasta, brown rice, peas,yogurt,rolled oats,millet seed, nothing raw at this time) and their droppings are normal. Can I use children's immodium? what dosage? Any Other Ideas?

    Thanks
