The color is probably caused by the chicken and rice, I know it's pretty common for it to cause that.
When my boy had colitis I ended up putting him on the chicken and rice diet and he scared the heck out of me because he ended up not pooing for around 2 days, then he pooed once and didn't poo for another 2 or so days. Once I had him back on a normal diet his bowel movements went back to normal. I'm not sure if that's true for all dogs, or my dog is just strange. I did call the vet when he didn't have a bowel movement the first time and they were not overly concerned about it. I was told to keep and eye on him and if he went another couple days with no bowel movement bring him back in.
If she normally eats dry kibble then her drinking less is most likely due to the high water content of the chicken and rice. Sort of like the difference between us eating dry cereal or fruit. The cereal will make you thirsty, the fruit won't.
