    Bloody stools won’t go away

    Thank you, all and every person who stopped by and shared wisdom and helpful tips! I did great for worms and gave them some fermented food and then just let them be. I saw blood stools for a few days but then I got so busy with school I didn’t check, and to my surprise not only do I not see any...

    Bloody stools won’t go away

    I’ll adjust their feed to take out scratch. I fed them high protein chicken food mixed with wild game food for a while when they were inside and I tried to get him back to health. It’s after I released them outside I started giving them chick finisher with scratch. I’ll take out scratch and will...

    Hi, and thank you for all the advise! This is what his poop looks like:( I did treat them again with permethrin dust and no more mites appeared so I’m guessing the first time got them all. For worming medication And more specific dosages I’ll check tomorrow morning. I used both, Corid and...

    Bloody stools won’t go away

    Hi Eggcessive, thank you for the suggestion. Yes, I took the first bird to the vet but I don’t have money or time to do that again. I’m currently flunking my grad school and lost funding because I’m not doing any writing, between my three kids and these sick chicks....I know I should have...

    Bloody stools won’t go away

    Hi, thank you for trying to help. I’m in CA. For Corid I’ve been giving them a couple of drops with a syringe once or twice a day, mixed with a few crumbles of sulfamethoxazole crushed pill. I’ve also had Corid in their water, and Corid and Sulfa in their water for two weeks but now I only do...

    Bloody stools won’t go away

    Hi, I have recently lost a polish to bloody stools despite Corid and Sulfa treatment, although I caught the sickness too late. Now I have another Polish that has bloody stools. I have been treating him with Corid and Sulfa for a few weeks now without any improvement. He contributes to have blood...

    Please help to tube feed my chick

    Hi again, I thought I’d share one last message in case it may help someone down the road. Because the picture of Ms. Plucky losing weight yet waking up to chirp and “act normal” did not fit together, I did a bit more looking into the surge before death concept. Why I’m posting my results here...

    Please help to tube feed my chick

    So, our little Plucky officially flew over the rainbow bridge. Going back, I think it was a combination of getting chilled overnight and receiving a huge dose of food in the morning. I guess antibiotics killed her digestive flora and she couldn’t safely handle much food. I should have stuck with...

    Please help to tube feed my chick

    After I turned on the vaporizer the humidity went one degree up, but shortly after she started convulsing as if in death. She did that twice, with her head up to her back and wings spread. I turned off the vaporizer (it wasn’t by her) and moved her a bit away. She is still breathing but I’m sure...

    Please help to tube feed my chick

    It’s 7 pm, 10 hours past her morning feeding. I just gave her 6cc of warmed SC fluid in her back region, some leaked out but I think some may have stayed. She is not doing any better but also, luckily, not any worse. I’m not gonna weigh her to avoid stressing her more but gonna keep her warm...

    Please help to tube feed my chick

    USUally on her back closer to neck, between her wings, but the last few time it leaked all out so I switched to under the wing. It still leaks. When I discovered her in this shape and moved to heat I tried to administer 5cc but I panicked and didn’t check for air so after 3cc I withdrew. I have...

    Please help to tube feed my chick

    She is in critical but stable condition. She is still breathing. Her temp prob went up a little because she started panting so I lowered the temp by 1 degree and she is now breathing through her nose again, but no improvement whatsoever

    Need help please. Pullet seems to have obstruction in throat and/or air sac/lung

    I’ve read a thread somewhere here on BYC that someone’s chickens on sand didn’t do well, there was too much sand in their crop and it also irritated their airways and their feet... sorry I don’t remember which thread it was or I’d post a link, but personally, I’d stay away from sand. However...

    Need help please. Pullet seems to have obstruction in throat and/or air sac/lung

    I’m no expert at all, but just a thought - could she be allergic or have something in her nostrils that’s irritating her?

    Please help to tube feed my chick

    Ok I propped her and then i did try to syphon out feed from her crop but nothing showed up in the tube (or on it). I tried to feel her crop and I think I feel some but not much, - but I’m not sure I’m even doing it right. She is not shivering or twitching anymore. I’m still waiting for my...
