    More info please...

    - what are they eating? any snacks?
    - are they housed or have exposure to older chickens?
    - color of stools?
    - any other symptoms?

    I'm sure others will come along with some comments, but please offer some more info in the meantime.

    start feeding active culture plain yogurt to them to help stabilize their gut flora. This is the time of growth when good bacteria start batteling bad and the bad causes loose stools.
