In birds that age the symptoms are huddling with ruffled feathers, no interest in water and feed, retarded growth, watery, pasty, tan or bloody diarrhea.
Thanks for your your info "chickenCanoe"! My girl is a cream Legbar and i posted a picture. She is much smaller than her sister, i did isolate her and got her to eat some food boiled egg and yogurt. She did eat a little bit of it and drank vitamin and Corid that i mixed up. The Corid is medication for Ccocidiosis si I decided that i would treat the whole flock.
I have a indoor chicken coop 12'x 12' that my husband built for them and he calls it the ckicken mansion, lol! We also have a huge garden area that we took and turned it into a nice run. Part of the run is covered with roofing so they don't have to be cooped up.
So far i have more than one bird that has the watery brownish diarrhea. Also they are losing a bunch of feathers, specially in the last 3-4 days. Im wondering if they have multiple issues?? Any info would be appreciated, im so lost in this chicken raising thing, lol!
