    Our girls arrived here yesterday, I am seeing at least one with pretty watery poop. I was wondering if this is just from stress or if I should worry. They are eating, drinking and running around fine.
    I have them on electrolyte water since bringing them home. Should I stop that and just give them regular water, I do have probiotics from Save A Chick too...should I use that?
    Thanks!

    Watery poops are ok. If you see bloody poops, you've got a problem. yes, I'd go ahead and give them the pro-biotics. IMO, better to give the chicks every advantage instead of wishing you had later.
