I'm sorry to hear this bad news.

Probably our pea health experts will be able to help you better with more information about the peababies.

Are they eating/drinking/pooping? Droopy eyes, droopy wings? How is their breathing, are they active, etc. etc.

Thank you!

​Not much info to go on here, I think my first move would have been to put the bully into isolation and then try to assess the remaining ones. Are they eating chick starter medicated with amprollium? Are you using corid or any other coccidiostat in the water? Coccidiosis will often taken them one after the next until they are all gone, but it is by no means the only thing that could. Poop pics would help, and a trip to the vet would be even better.  Keep us posted.

Are you using a red light? They peck eyes if you use a white bulb.

Wash his butt with warm water. Also age and have they ever been on the ground or in contact with chikens. 4-6 weeks old on ground might want to treat for blackhead.
