I bought 6 chicks from a local feed store, who had them shipped this weekend from a hatchery. They all seemed fine at first, just a few days old.
I have an 8 ft by 2 foot metal trough (old horse feeder) with a good layer of pine shavings and a heat lamp. (not too hot though). They are in my Laundry/Mud room, which is a heated.
Yesterday one was very lethargic, Wouldn't eat or drink. No blood in poo. She was dead this morning.
Now, another one is acting the same way- but was just fine yesterday.
Could be coccidiosis? Could it be low blood sugar or low nutrition from being shipped?
If its not Coccidiosis, and I give them Corid, will that hurt them?
Can I put sugar in the water just in case?
Any ideas would be great.
