    It's normal for every few poops to be runny brown and stinky. These types of poops are called Cecal poop. You can look them up on google. They come from the cecal area. However if ALL the poops are runny like liquid I suggest adding a good probotic too her water. Not all probotics are the same. I prefer using Probios for poultry. You can order it online. After about a week of use she should be back to normal. Probotics are great for chicks and adults by giving beneficial bacteria to their systems. Hope this helps.

    I just got new chicks last week and had the same issue with some. I was told it was most likely shipping stress, which could last a week or so. I've been putting electrolytes in their water, and they've really perked up, though one is still weak/wobbly - but much better. Good luck.
