To use Corid or not?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My 2 week old chicks have been doing great but I noticed 3 poop piles this morning that had blood in them. They looked very similar to the "shed stomach lining" poop pictures except for one- a little more splayed out and darker red. I went ahead and ordered Corid because I freak out over small stuff. I haven't seen any poop that looks abnormal since this morning, other than some brown/yellow stinky diarrhea looking poop.
Should I go ahead and treat all of them with Corid just in case, treat just the one that I know had the diarrhea (only once today that I know of) or keep an eye on them? I was worried that if I treat them with Corid, if they don't need it, it may hurt them.

I think it is intestinal lining and nothing to worry about. Though you should get him/her tested for cocci if you are very concerned.

I'm not too concerned at this moment. The closest Dr that will see poultry is around an hour away as far as I've researched. I just wasn't sure if I should treat something that 'may' be coccidi. The last thing I want to do is treat a healthy chick and make things worse.

Go to the vet because if it is really coccidiosis it could be life threatening to the chick.
