    I had the same happen to my new chicks this year. I started them all on sulmet. I lost the one who had bloody stools but no more. Why are the new chicks getting this. Mine had never been on the dirt and had just arrived. I got them through a feed store so I don't know where they ordered them from. Jean
    PS. All the others are now 6 weeks old and doing fine.
