I May have a chicken problem?????

I'm thinking I may have a chicken problem. I've notice the last couple of days that 1 of my chickens (don't know which one) may have diahhrea based on the droppings that I see in the hen house. I just got 6 Production Reds last week that are approx. 16-17 weeks old. Their combs and earlobes are not the rosey red yet. Before I got them I didn't notice any thing different in the the older hens (I've got 12 older hens between the age of 10 - 12 months old). Do you think I have a problem? I've been very diligent in feeding them the right feed (nothin off the table, like my mother-n-law wants to do!!!)However, I do give them raw carrots, celery & lettuce. Pls. let me know if I need to worry about anything. I've read the book "Raising chickens" and still can't determine if anything is wrong.. Help!!!
