    I have a 3 day old Serama chick that just passed what looked to be blood and only blood. Unfortunately I cleaned out the brooder before I thought to take a picture, I also have quarantined the chick until I could gets some info from you guys. Any help is much appreciated thanks in advance.

    Treat with Corid 9.5 cc per gallon of water. Treat all your birds for 5 days (double check the number of days) Make sure it's the only water available. Do this ASAP. They are very sick by the time you see blood. You can also use Sulmet, but that is your second choice by far. It is very hard on their systems. Good luck! [​IMG]

    Ok so it happened again and this time I snapped a pic. How could this happen to a 3 day old chick, I guess it doesn't matter how old they are. I will get the 5 little guys in my brooder started on meds asap. Thanks so much for the info.
