Pinkish/reddish color in chick poop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I picked up three Wyandotte chicks this morning at a chicken swap, they are about three weeks old. They haven't been on medicated feed but I just started them on it when we got home. They all seem to be acting normal from what I can see (this is my first time having chicks). One of them just passed a stool that looks like this and I'm wondering if I should be worried. All stools have been normal until now, they've been home about 8 hours.

Looks like it could be Coccidiosis. You will need to treat them with Corid.

 

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.
