Much ado about poo- Sick D'uccle?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have 2 -1.5wk old bantam d'uccles. One started looking kinda run down about 3 days ago, looking sleepy, peeping, eyes closed alot. Thought it was just larger chicks running them over and beating them to food etc so I separated them to their own box. I came back a bit later and noticed one had made a dark wine colored poo. Started giving electrolyte amd probiotic since it seemed to still be eating and drinking. The chick seemed to perk up by the next day. I have not seen any more dark wine colored poos since that day. It seemed fine yesterday but still peeps alot. I thought maybe it was lonesome or cold so I wrapped it in a washcloth and carried it in my pocket while I did housework. Today it seems ok but I found some light pink tinged poo??? The chick doesnt seem run down or anything. Its eating and drinking as far as I can see. Am I worrying for nothing or is this coccidiosis or something bad?

Do you have a heat lamp on them?

Yes. We have the chicks all in our basement at the moment with heat lamps. I just brought them upstairs to a window to get better pictures of the stool. They seem to be enjoying a little sunlight.

Anyone have any ideas on the stool?

If they were mine I would treat for Cocci.

 

Dosage for Cocci is
1 1/2 teaspoons Corid powder per gallon or
2 teaspoons of 9.6% Corid liquid per gallon

Give for 5-7 days - make sure this is the ONLY water available during that time period. Mix a fresh batch at least once a day.
