Bought some chicks the other day from some local chick farmers. They all look healthy, except that I just noticed fresh blood in one of their stools. I'm assuming that is a sign of Coccidiosis. If so, what is the best remedy to alleviate this problem? Thanks!!

Corid or amprollium is the safest medicine to treat for coccidiosis, and is found in the cattle medicine aisle of farm stores. Dosage is 2 tsp. of the liquid Coris, or 1.5 tsp of the powder per gallon of water for 5-7 days, changing the water daily. Symptoms of cocci may be lethargy, puffing up, poor appetite, ruffled feathers, and weakness, but blood in the stools or diarrhea may be the first sign.
