I have two separate flocks... One laying hens... They have tapered off from 10-11 a day to 1-3 eggs.... I put a lamp in their coop.... But am not getting results, how long does this take? Could early stages of coccidiosis affect their egg laying? 30 / 6 weeks old chicks, three dead this morning with bloody stool. The rest look fine. Ive started them on meds for coccidiosis (i got the chicks from another party). What are the chances the rest will make it? They are on pasture... This shouldnt have happened. How do i dispose of bedding and dead chicks? Compost pile? Or bury? Should i medicate my hens also who are in a different spot because of this outbreak with the chicks? They are not together, but the hens do sometimes come over and eat the chicks leftovers, means that cross contamination is sure. I know coccidiosis is always present, but not sure if it means i should medicate the laying flock or not. Perhaps just medicated feed, not medicine directly?
