My two 5 week old doelings got into the chicken feed yesterday. It wasn’t much. Maybe a handful. This morning she has really runny diarrhea. I am currently bottle feeding both of them. They both drank all their bottle and ate some alfalfa hay and feed this morning. Other than the runny diarrhea she is acting normal. The other doeling doesn’t have diarrhea. What should I do? Should I be concerned?

If all other things are normal... then I would call it good.

HOWEVER... now that they know where the chicken feed is, it will be very hard to keep them out!
