Bloody poop

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Ok just discovered one of my 7 week old chicks has bloody or at least reddish runny poop. What do I do?

Make sure it isnt intestinal lining that was shed, which is normal. Here's the poop chart:

If it's not intestinal lining, purchase corid 9.6% liquid solution at your feed store, it'll be in the cattle section. Dosage is 9.5cc per gallon of water for 5 days. You'll want to treat all your chicks with it.

So is there not anything to treat this? There are several chicks in with her, will they all get sick?

will they die?

Cocci can be spread, so yes, if there is any other's in there with her than they will catch it too.  

 

This video will explain what cocci is and how it affects your chicken; enlightening, IMO.  Beware, it's a little graphic.

ok I thought I practiced sanitary habits as best as possible. I will get some Corid first thing in the morning, I have tylan, but from what I've read, that won't do any good?   Is it always a death sentence? I think only one of them has the bloody stool.

See post #2 on what to do. Cocci can kill your chicks, timeliness is of the utmost importance in treating it. If the feed stores are closed, you can temporarily delay (hopefully) the effects by sprinkling powdered milk directly onto their feed to eat. Get the corid asap.
