Having a rough summer with our poultry this year. Our latest is my 8 week old silkie mix that I think has coccidisis. A day and a half ago I noticed bloody stool and had to massage her crop and a lot of fluid came out. Yesterday I noticed the white sticky, runny poop and again had to massage her crop. Last night I cleaned the bedding and started her on Apple cider vinegar. I noticed her poop is still very runny today, but I did not see the white on her fuzz today. Tonight I cleaned the bedding and gave more water with the vinegar. She doesn't seem to be herself yet, did I wait to long to treat, and is there more I should do? We have raised chickens for a couple years and have never run into this. Thank you in advance for any help. In addition, we only have the one silkie and she is not mixed in with the rest of our flock.
