    My quails look ill

    I got my first quails about two weeks ago, two female coturnix quails. They were seven or eight weeks old at the time. When they arrived, they were not eating enough, standing with ruffled feathers and eyes closed almost all day. I thought it was because of the recent change of home. They became...

    Sulfadimethoxine dosage coccidiosis

    I have been battling coccidiosis that keeps coming back (blood in stool) in one or two (out of 23) birds. Corid helps for a bit then after a couple weeks of no corid the blood comes back. So I got a sulfadimethoxine powder that is 25% medicine. I don’t want to dose them all because they don’t...

    Bloody feathers and poo, but just one.

    My BO has bloody feathers around her vent this morning and I found a single bloody poo in the coop. She’s behaving fine and her poos now look completely normal. She’s not laying yet, but should be getting close. I’m not sure what to do. Could it be coccidiosis with just one bloody poo or is it...

    Cecal Poop or Something Concerning?

    A few of our 12-week-old chickens are having yellowish poops (sometimes foamier, sometimes more pudding-like than pictured), but are otherwise eating, drinking, and acting energetic. Their combs are all as red as usual. We have also seen them each take normal poops in between the scarier looking...

    Transitioning from Medicated Feed - Too Soon?

    Hi all! I've read a lot of conflicting information on when to switch chicks from a medicated starter to an unmedicated starter/grower. Our chickens are currently 11 weeks old, and have been on Manna Pro's medicated starter from the beginning. We put them in their outdoor coop/run at 4 weeks (so...
