    My little week old RIR might be having diarrhea. Its liquidy, light greenish brown, and a little bubbly. They have electrolytes in their water, and she is not displaying any other signs of illness. She is eating, and drinking just fine. What do you think?

    Thank you! That was VERY helpful. In the link with photo's it looked like one of the poop's in the normal section (Ceacal) , but it also looked like one of the poops in the abnormal section. I guess i will just keep my eye on it and see what happens.
