HELP!! Don't know what to do, sick chicken? - Page 2

post #11 of 16

Here is a recent dropping from an adult chicken I have. Is this normal? It looks similar to that one chicks that died, but not bright green like hers was.

That wouldn't raise any alarms with me.

That's good to know! I have chicks that are 3 weeks old this week. I didn't get water into them yesterday. Most of them are having pink tissue looking stuff in their droppings now. I'm the worst chicken person. Ugh. It was only less than a day, but they drank like they hadn't drank in a week. Poor guys. Is the pink of concern since 4 out of 6 had it? I just moved them to a larger area, but I'm wondering if they could have cocc, or can they excrete tissue that early? Constipated? sad.png

I would worry about coccidia with the pink.  Use corid in the water as soon as possible. 

 

Medicated feed will also help prevent this if it keeps recurring. It will not stop exposure, but will prevent an overload of cocci in their gut and allow them to build up an immunity.

Have been using corid. The chicks are growing better and got spunky that same day. Thank you!! Now I'm thinking that's what my little 6 week old had that died... but not sure because her flock mates are healthy and big.

Glad to hear they are doing better.  :)  Sorry I didn't see your question about corid dosage.  Guess you found it!
