    My two RIR chicks, about 2 weeks old, seem healthy in every way. They are active, look great, eating well and drinking well. I noticed the other day that one has very loose stools.. squirty.. they even sound squirty when she goes. The are on medicated starter and were also on Arythro (sp?) for a week when one of their mates came down with an illness (and survived).. I add vitamins and electrolytes to their water and started adding powdered probiotics yesterday..

    Is this just the result of the meds or something I should worry about?

    If they show no signs of illness, take them off all meds. Just the med chick feed and water. In about three days they should be back to normal.
