    My chicks are 6 weeks old. I've noticed this morning that suddenly their poop, I think all of them, is very watery. Just curious if I should worry, or give it a few days to see if the problem takes care of itself.

    Drinking lots of water will make it more runny also. Add some plain active culture yogurt to their diet to help firm it up.
