    I haven't heard of vitamins causing watery poop. Certainly antibiotics can do it. As long as there are solids in her droppings, I wouldn't be too concerned however, you might take her temperature (normal is 103-105) to see if perhaps she has an infection and feel her abdomen to see if its getting enlarged. Sometimes, chickens get their digestive track blocked by eating inedible things and the solids can't get through but the bile and urates can pass giving watery droppings.
