    She could be drinking more water than the others which could make her droppings more watery. You could add some probiotics to her water if her feed does not contain them (it should say on the bag.) Plain yogurt occasionally can help. If it keeps up, you might want to get several of her droppings checked by the vet for worms and coccidia. Good poultry wormers are Valbazen and Safeguard liquid goat wormer. You also could post a picture or two of droppings.
