My almost 2 yr old road island red is not feeling well. 2 days ago I found her just standing next to the fence along. I checked on her and gave her some treats, but she did not eat them. I checked her out to be sure she was not hurt, but did not find anything. I noticed her pouch was empty. That time of the day it should have been full.
I brought her you to the house to try and get her to eat. Still nothing. She did let go a big wet yellow poo with some dark clots in it. From everything I have been reading it sounds like it might be Coccidiosis. I got her started on Corid right away. The end of today will be 3 days taking the water. She is drinking it, but that is about all she is taking. Most of the time I have to get her started to drink it. IF this is what she has, how many days will it take before I see her getting better? I know she has to be on the water 5-7 days, but should I start to see a difference soon? will her poo start to look different?
I am thinking about taking a sample to the vet tomorrow to run tests on it if I dont see a difference in the morning.
Any advice would be helpful. We have 5 girls, and I have the rest on the water too just to be sure. We also cleaned the coop really good. No one else is sick and they are all laying but her.
