    Keep an eye on them, but it is most likely that the food change caused the soft feces. Next time that you change feeds, do so gradually. Instead of making an abrupt change, gradually add increasing proportions of the new feed to their diet until they are 100% on the new feed. Good luck, but I think all will be fine.
