I have 10 chicks that are 4 weeks old and some of them do watery poos. I can tell which ones because sometimes they do both liquid and solid! I don't know if this is a problem or if it is normal. If there is anything I should do, please reply! Thank you!

As long as it's not every poop then yes it's probably normal.

Chickens have what is called a 'cecal' poop every 8-10 poops. Since they go poop about every 30 minutes, that adds up to quite a few cecal poops in a day! It is a normal part of their digestive process where they shed part of the lining of their digestive organs. These poops tend to look a but more diarrhea like than a regular poop and are much stinkier.
