I am dealing with my first coccidia problem ever in raising chicks. A few weeks before it started showing up, I had noticed some mice droppings and put out poison, but it took maybe two weeks to get the adults and the juveniles as they got older, so I guess they were cruising around until they discovered the bait and they had time to contaminate my brooders. I lost a couple, and took some to the state lab because I had never seen it before. I felt so dumb when it came back coccidia. A few more are sick with it and I am using Sulmet in everyone's water. I am boosting the sicker chicks with an initial dose that is double concentrated, to kick start the battle. I am using that double concentration as the water to dilute Exact baby bird formula (have that on had already) and am hand feeding one that is my only offspring so far out of an important pair. He is not doing great. Looks very weak. Last night I gave him normal saline injections under the skin, 3cc to each side of the breast. He perked up a bit and started to try to eat and drink, with me helping to steady him and keep the others away. This morning, not so well as last night, and some blood in the stool, and loose stool. I filled his crop about 2/3 full with baby bird formula, made with the sulmet water, normal strength. He has gained some strength and is walking from point A to point B, but wobbly and weak. Mostly resting. Crossing fingers for yours and mine both. Wish I was smarter sooner.
