    I have a 3 month old Japanese pullet showing every sign of coccidiosis. She's been on medicated chick starter from day one and is now separarted with Solmed in her water to see if I can save her. She's been with 8 other chicks, 2 her age and 6 that are about 3 wks older. None of them show any symptoms.

    She is still eating and drinking really well, just runny poo and extremely lethargic. She's back in a brooder with a heat lamp so she can be as warm as she wants to be, but she's been out in a coop and run for several weeks.
