I hope that the runs have cleared up - but if not you might try fasting for a day and then feeding the chicken & rice.
An easier way is to check their gums. If they are sticky to touch, they need water, also, if you press on them and the white doesn't return to the usual pink, that is also a sign of dehydration.
