So frustrated. My bf and I have been wanting chickens for a while. My bf decided to pick up10 chicks from a local person instead of ordering online thought it would be less stressful for them. We have zero expirience with chickens....I feel like he was taken advantage of and sold sick chicks they have major feather loss which the owner attributed to all of the chicks crawling on eachother, and now they're having what looks like bloody diarrhea. We just wanted chickens for eggs and were sold these sickly little chicks. They're eating well. A couple of them are much bigger than the others. They look so scrawny. I don't know what to do with them anyways here's why their poop looks like. Does this look suspicious for intestinal parasites? I also did another post regarding the baldness. Here's some pics of that.... I've tried contacting the people who sold them to my boyfriend and of course they havent responded my boyfriend said they looked bad but he wanted to help them that's why he bought them, but I probably wouldn't have bought chicks in this condition. Is this a normal thing and I'm just over reacting ? Do they go bald/have diarrhea? I feel like we're in over our heads with these guys and have no clue what to do. Sorry for complaining I needed to vent. Lol. Thanks for listening !
