    I agree with trying probiotics. I would also try a little cooked white rice as suggested by Eggcessive. It doesn't have nutrients, but would likely slow down the diarrhea so she has a better chance to balance things out in her digestive tract.

    It looks like the probiotics are doing their thing, her comb is nice and bright red like it should be. I've not seen her poop yet today but there is no diarrhea only a couple of softer ones out in the chicken yard and I've cleaned it twice today.
