In the Brooder

My neighbor got 6 chickens and was neglecting them and after a few discussions she turned them over to me. Out of the 6 one was on the verge of death when we go them and she did not make it. I took 2 of the healthiest chickens over to my in laws where the rest of our chickens are. The three left at my house have runny butts. I have given them proper nutrition and water. I am not sure how to get rid of the runny white poopy butts. Besides that a neighbor who heard that I took these chickens in came over today and asked me if I would take 4 chickens that his sister has just "dropped off" at his house. It seems to me that all the chickens had come from the same place. All tail feathers plucked off and more runny butts. I need to get them healthy so I can get them over to the "big hen house". At my house I just have a mini house and they free range during the day. Anyways I am now the chicken lady of the neighborhood. But I need to have healthy chickens.. Any suggestions on how to get the runny white poopy naked butts fixed?
