My 11 week silkie got a dose of ivermectin four days ago for what was probably either scaly face mites, favus, or something else. (White flaky skin on face, head, neck). She now has diarrhea. Very wet, watery poo. Could this be from the ivermectin? I’ve also switched her from pellets to mash, just adding water to her regular food. Could that be affecting her this way? She is eating like normal. Pecking and scratching like normal. Still in brooder. Appreciate any input!!

The switch in feed and wetting of feed is more likely to cause loose stool than Ivermectin is.
So I began wetting the food bc she has a slight scissor beak and it makes it easier for her to eat. Should I stop? It isn’t affecting the other chicken
