    HELP want to save my young pullet

    I treated my young chicks and guineas for cocci as I lost 2 and noticed the symptoms. Everyone perked up and then the other day I noticed dirty vent on a young pullet (most turned out to be roosters). I really want to save her. I have isolated, washed the area with warm water and dettol mix...

    Poland owners: should I preemptively treat for cocci?

    I'm new to polands. I have six five-week old bantams, just starting to come off of medicated chick crumb. Someone on a Facebook poland group frightened me by saying polands are famously susceptible to cocci and she just goes ahead and treats them with Coxoid regardless. (In fact, the whole...

    Saying goodbye to my favorite hen

    I had to say goodbye to my favorite hen yesterday. Young sweet Phyllis, a beautiful Buff Orpington that I raised since she was about 4 days old. She always seemed the strongest. She was the mother hen of my flock of 3; the sweetest girl, she always ran up to me when I came outside, and followed...

    I have a two week old chick that is growing at a third of the rate as the rest. She’s still almost the same size as when she hatched, but her wing feathers have been growing in. Breathing is slightly labored and there is sometimes a clicking sound. She only sleeps standing up. Will eat and...

    What should be first?

    Long time no see, BYC! I'm going to make this post short and sweet lol. What should I treat first? Worms or coccidia? We had devastating flooding, it brought in a bunch of crap. I noticed some thinner chickens today and thought I should treat them to be safe. I have corid(liquid) and...

    Is this cocci?

    When it rains, it pours. It’s been raining here for three days, and my mother hen has lost three of ten babies to wet and very cold conditions (she’s still doing her best). My coop has drainage issues that I haven’t been able to address yet so it’s a mucky wet mess. While I was going outside of...

    Coccidiosis - how long through treatment before no blood visible?

    I adopted 3 ex-batt hens about 3 weeks ago (they are 18 months old). They were all in a very poor state and had also had the stress of transport before I collected them. I have had them separated from the rest of my girls and have given them much TLC and good quality feed. They were all...

    Cocci??

    I got these quail from another breeder and it appeared they had arrived with cocci? Despite keeping them completely separate from my birds and washing my hands before going into cages, I think they caught it too. I got a hold of some Amrprolium and mixed it accurately in their water. Mixed a...

    Worried about my babies

    This last Saturday we noticed bloody poop in the brooder that holds our five three-week old chicks. I'd read a lot about cocci so we immediately began treating with Corid using the measurements of 1.5 tsp of powdered Corid per gallon of water. It's been two days and we're still seeing bloody...

    What is Coccidiosis?

    Hello, I am new to chickens and am hoping to get 2 Rhode Island Red Hens as well as 2 Buckeye Hens. I am wondering what Coccidiosis is and what it does to chicks. The chickens would be a day old when I get them and I'm also wondering about starter feed? Help!!

    Intestinal shed? Not an emergency...

    Ok, so just before Christmas I had a sudden death and really bloody poop in my 8-9 week old chicks in their brooder. It was suggested here as coccidiosis and I got my cats vet to (somewhat reluctantly) do a fecal float and prescribe me some Amprolium for the coccidiosis, no worm signs at all in...

    I saw all the dosages for Corid for mixing with water, what about a direct oral dosage?

    I’m pretty sure my chicken has coccidiosis. She won’t drink, so I can’t mix amprolium in the water. Does anyone have a dosage to give Corid orally, so not mixed in any water? Thanks. My hen is 7 years old now, too.
