Post coccidia treatment, but bird still sick?

    I have a couple 8-10 week old pullets that I treated for coccidia with some help from the awesome people on here (thanks again! :) ) and they appear to be better. They were treated from Monday last week to Monday of this week and last night I started electrolytes.
    For a few days their poop was normal, everything (acting, eating, drinking) appeared normal. My SS showed a complete turnaround by Thursday.
    Now my SS (the one that was really sick) is still acting totally normal but having strange poops for the last couple days. She is eating and drinking, active, and seems fine. But why the odd poop? Can the coccidia recur? I've been trying to get a weight on her but she's not cooperating.
    Treatment was 7 days with 1.5 tsp Corid powder per 1 gal water, plus I did 3 days of an oral drench on the SS since she was the one with all the symptoms.
    Will attach poo pics- all are from the last couple hours.[​IMG]

    And now I'm starting to see her ruffle her feathers and tuck her head again, though not consistently like before.
