post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

1 Chick four weeks old. Has diarrhea and is falling over on occasion.


2 Some of the other chicks have diarrhea too but I read it could be because they are thot. There are no worms or anything in the diarrhea.

3 let them play in the run for 2hours today. Could the chick just be tired and hot temp 75 Texas?

4 Temp is 70 -80 in the am and 50-60 at night should I remove the heat lamp.

5 She is flying and walking around.

6 The chick that are black


 are  Australorp but are now getting brown feathers. Do you think they are a mix breed

Coccidiosis is common in younger chicks. The symptoms are lethargy, weakness, hunched posture, not eating, and diarrhea with mucus or blood. Corid (amprollium,) a cattle medicine is the treatment. Make sure that chicks on grass get some chick grit to help with digestion.
